Located in the heart of Montparnasse district, the Brasserie La Coupole is an Art Deco masterpiece. But the restaurant’s oyster and shellfish offerings secured its reputation. Since its creation in 1927, La Coupole’s seafood has lured the likes of (Brooklyn's own) Henry Miller, Josephine Baker and Matisse to its tables. Williamsburg’s own Maison Premiere has transatlanticized that Parisian atmosphere (by way of the French Quarter). They’ve switched out La Coupole’s Art Deco for a Bistro theme, but kept the bivalve-oriented menu, adding a venerable cocktail and absinthe list.
