Venue Info

"The Silver Mirror" is a fancy spot where the food is done up as pretty on the plates as the interior of these two 1614 houses named after their wealthy original owner. The spot has been a café since the full restoration in the 1930s. During WWII, hidden rooms protected a large family of Jewish regulars (who managed to stay hidden through six raids), and the restaurant became a hangout for the resistance press. The food's not bad, but let's be honest: you're coming here for the history.
