Even if you don't like food chain you must admit that Leon de Bruxelles is essential. It has popularized mussels in France. Not that mussels weren't a popular dish. But they were limited to some seasons, some regions, to fish stalls and specialized restaurants. Leon...More

Was so glad our host in Paris recommended we stop in here if we enjoy mussels. Delicious! And the Irish Coffee was the perfect ending to a long day!

Ordered the salmon & Basil Mussels in a Papillotte served with rice. However, when it arrived at table it came with chips. Our french is not that good, but when we mentioned that the menu says rice, we just got a shrug and the waiter...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
