Brasserie de l'Univers, Tours

8 Place Jean Jaurès
France 37000
Tel: 33 2 47 05 50 92's insider take:

This big, beautiful Belle Époque restaurant dates to 1896 and has an original stained-glass domed ceiling and an outdoor terrace. It's widely acknowledged to be the best brasserie in town, and has long been popular with writers and poets (it hosts numerous literary festivals and academic talks about local history and architecture). The service is flawless, and the food is simple but good—mostly grilled meats, fish, and seafood, and classics like duck breast confit, foie gras, and oysters St. Jacques, as well as pizza and salads.
