Auberge Nicolas Flamel- This is yet another classic French restaurant with rich history.  In 1330 Nicolas Flamel was inspired by a book to fulfill his life dreams. As a scribe he made an average amount of money, but he married a wealthy woman and they devoted their lives to helping others and seeing the world prosper. Nicolas and his wife planted roots in Paris, and have turned their home into a magnificent restaurant. The history of Nicolas is long and but worth taking your time to read.

Chez Bouboule- This is a restaurant and gaming place all in one!
