Hg2 : The Hedonist

Le Train Bleu

Very beautiful, ornate and unique, with its 40 antique paintings, each depicting a scene from a location somewhere on the splendid 1900s rail network, Le Train Bleu is, at present, something of a relic. The brasserie food is good, if expensive; the service absolutely charming; and the location unbeatable. Alas, it lacks only a glamorous clientele and buzzing atmosphere; hopefully this ultra-romantic dining room will regain its place among the greats soon, rather than chugging along charmingly. Having said all this, we’re rather partial to its faded beauty. Tear off your jeans and Converse, get a little retro, and climb aboard for lobster salad, Lyon saucission with warm Ratte potato salad, then veal chop with lasagne or classic breaded pig’s trotters. This being a train station, it’s an ideal place for heavy relationship conversations, even tears, so long as everything’s OK again in time for the booze-soaked rum baba.
