Le Grand Palais Restaurant, 21 Ave D. Franklin Roosevelt
If you are planning on visiting the Grand Palais and are looking for somewhere for lunch or a snack, this is a good place. We were going to a special exhibit on Rodin at the Grand Palais, and had planned to eat in the café in the Petit Palais opposite (where we’ve eaten before and really like it). But, it was a Monday and the Petit Palais is closed on Mondays.
So, we headed here instead. It’s on the street that runs behind the Grand Palais, and we’d noticed it earlier as we walked past the Palais de la Découverte. Turns out it was a good alternative.
Seating is both inside and outside, under bright red awnings that cast a reddish glow over everything. We opted for a table outside even though it was a little cool. Luckily we were right under a heater!
Service was friendly and quick and we enjoyed our salads: I had a salade nicoise; and Rod a salade chevre miel (goat cheese with honey). With a pichet of rose wine and 2 coffees, the total was just under 50 euros.
