This Alsatian brasserie in the 17th arrondissement has been around since 1925 and continues to specialize in seafood, particularly shellfish. Although Rech has recently been updated by chef Alain Ducasse, the fruits de mer and oyster platters have kept their place on the menu, as have the Art Deco furnishings. Other popular dishes include the sole for two and the crayfish in tomato cream with almonds. For dessert, the enormous eclairs and Camembert cheese served whole might require a doggy bag.
