Paris has one of the world most interesting and fabulous historic restaurants. Sunday brunching at the reputed turn of the century restaurant “Le Train Bleu” can be quite a nice journey into the past when train journeys at its early days are popular especially among the wealthy. Opened in 1901 then “the Buffet de la Gare de Lyon”, Le Train Bleu as it is known today has one of the city most unique decor, richly adorned with frescoes and golden sculptures.
The elaborate ornamentation can be quite overwhelming when entering the restaurant, but Le Train Bleu is one of the few restaurants today, part of France Historic Monument, that has kept its bygone charms.
Indeed eating at this fabulous place may take you on a nice imaginative train journey over the many destinations operated by the French Railway then known as Chemins de fer de Paris à Lyon et à la Méditerranée (PLM) such as the Train Bleu, the famous night train to the French Riviera serving the elite and the famous. The wall paintings depict the many destinations operated by the French Railway.
