Seafood Towers in Paris

I'll be traveling to Paris for a long weekend during American Thanksgiving. This will be my 4th time in the past 8 years staying in the 10th near Canal St Martin. I'm curious if anyone has any recommendations for good restaurants with oysters and/or seafood towers. I know that the celebratory mood will be hitting France and oysters and champagne will be plentiful - I'm curious if any locals or frequent visitors have suggestions. I'll be arriving a Wednesday morning from Chicago and would love my first meal to be a beautiful seafood tower. Thanks for any suggestions!

For this, you have to target the brasseries like the Procope, Vagenende (Both in Odéon area), Bofinger (Bastille), Lorraine (Ternes), Wepler (place de Clichy), Mollard (St Lazare), etc
there are plenty in Paris

If you are willing to travel to the Left Bank, le Dôme, la Coupole, or la Méditerranée are all excellent.

Thank you for the suggestions! Paris has so many great restaurants and brasseries but I figured it would be best to do some research in advance. Nothing is more disappointing than being jetlagged and stumbling into a subpar tourist trap. Some huitres and a glass or two of muscadet will be the perfect post-flight rejuvenation!

Well, if you only want oysters and shrimp then there no better place than Regis Huitries. That is ALL that they serve. No hot dishes nothing else and very small. They open at 6:30 (very early by French standards).

Highly recommend Terminus Nord, a lovely cafe/brasserie across from the Gare du Nord. All Art Deco interiors, you think you are about to board the Orient Express.

Superb service.

And their seafood towers are fantastic.

This, Procope, and the traditional ones on left bank (la Coupole, le Dome). Part of the fun is the atmosphere and decor.
