A legendary restaurant in on the 2nd floor of the Gare de Lyon built in 1900 by the PLM company on the occassion of the Universal Exhibition. Chanel, Cocteau, Gabin, Bardot and many famous personalities have eaten in the exquisitively designed room covered with 41 paintings depicting the French countryside which the trains traversed. From the outside, it evokes the Belle Epoque fairly discreetly. However, it is inside that the best-preserved and most stunning examples of 1900 style are to be found. In 1972 Andre Malraux granted it Historical Monument status. But you dodn't have to just see it. You can eat here and live the experience. You may have seen the restaurant in the films Nikita or Place Vendome

The 12th arrondissement from the Bastille to the Bois de Vincennes is generally residential but has become regenerated and trendy since the building of the L' Opera-Bastille. The Bastille Opera was built by the architect Carlos Ott and inaugurated on July 14, 1989. A modern but not very pretty building, its original purpose was to give opera to all people at reasonable prices.
The rue du Faubourg St. Antoine has always been a center for furniture makers but there are picturesque little alleys and streets in the area. Rue de Lappe typifies the rejuvenation of the Bastille area.
