    L'Alsace (Brasserie): Choucroute on the Champs

    Choucroute is the French word for sauerkraut, an Alsatian dish of sour cabbage topped off by as many varieties of sausage as you can find, and a few slabs of bacon scattered around.

    It is a speciality of the Maison d'Alsace on the Champs Elysees. An ordinary choucroute costs 18 euros, but the "Royal" variation comes with cabbage cooked in champagne and the addition of a goose leg preserved in fat. This one costs 24 euros - and of course the price doesn't include anything extra like wine or dessert. This might sound a lot, but in fact it's about average for the Champs Elysées!

    VERY nourishing!

    la Maison de l'Alsace: 24/24

    Late diners and early risers sit side-by-side at this brasserie/bar/café on avenue des Champs-Elysées. Open 24 hours, la Maison de l'Alsace is a great option for a late dinner for those out clubbing, or an early breakfast for the jet lagged among us. This brasserie is part of la Maison de l'Alsace, an establishment in charge of promoting tourism to l'Alsace, the region in eastern France. The brasserie itself serves many specialties from the region along with typical French brasserie food.

    UPDATE: In 2012, the restaurant closed for a complete renovation of the entire building. The project continues as I type in July 2013, but the restaurant will re-open upon completion.
