The Brasserie du Theatre is a Montpellier institution straight out of The Great Gatsby that will take you right back to the 1920s: the embodiment of Art Deco aesthetic and the ultimate era of refinement and celebration. Wood panelling, stained glass, mirrors, tulip lamps, and leather-upholstered banquettes create an elegant and intimate setting.
Whether you slide into a smooth tobacco-coloured leather armchair, or set up elbow to elbow with other guests at the zinc bar, your impression will always be that of living in a moment of suspended animation, defying the laws of passing time. The menu features a seafood platter that may lure you, given the promise, inscribed in gold letters on the front of the establishment, of a "daily arrival from Brittany". A range of dishes like seared scallops in fleur de sel and seasonal vegetable tarts, a tuna tataki with artichoke tempura or the grenadine of veal with a star anise jus, confit aubergine and potato rostis make your visit a real immersion in the tradition of home cooking and the "brasserie" culture.
