This restaurant manages to stand out in a crowded field - "bistrots in Paris" - and that says so much. It has a larger menu than many neighborhood places, which is important because its typical competitor has such limited selections. The food was excellent and...More

We had our first meal in Paris there, a late dinner. Servers were friendly and English spoken. They had Smoked Mozzarella! (It was amazing!) Food was decent, a great place to kick back and chill in your casual attire.

Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
