A restaurant like a museum in a station in Paris

I did not expect to find it here. Here is the Gare de Lyon in Paris and what I found was a restaurant a famous restaurant. You can see it in some movies, such as Nikita, Place Vendôme or Mr. Bean's Holiday. Coco Chanel, Salvador Dali, Brigitte Bardot and many other well known person have been regulars here. This belle-epoque restaurant was opened in 1901 and the name was Buffet de la Gare de Lyon. In 1963 it was renamed Le train Bleu to honor the famous historic train with the same name.

Yeah, been here. It's marvelous! (So counts the price) but worth it. And also, been to the museum like train station. Err, technically, it used to be a train station. Musée d'Orsay.
