Had eaten there years ago and remembered a very good meal. Perhaps my expectations were too high this time, or my memory flawed, but something was amiss. Food was just ok; charming bistro decor, attentive proprietor...strangely we were the only customers. I had noticed during...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
