Paris Travel Planner   Rue Montorgueil Restaurants, Paris
This lively neighborhood is full of restaurants of all types, as well as wonderful market shops.




Rue Montorgueil, near the old Les Halles (the original market of Paris, which has since moved out of the city), has a variety of stores, with an emphasis on meats and seafood. It's an up and coming neighborhood in the 2nd arrondissement (Métro Étienne Marcel) and a colorful spot. If you want ham, bacon, or various kinds of sausage, you'll find a great variety here:

It's also a treasure trove of restaurants. A recent stroll up the street left me in the quandary of trying to decide where to have lunch. I finally opted for Au Rocher de Cancale, out of nostalgia for our wonderful visit to the town of Cancale in Brittany.

But there were plenty of other choices, from French bistros to Turkish restaurants to Asian traiteurs. Just about every place was doing a good business on a sunny Saturday.

The upper part of Rue Montorgueil, from xxx to Etienne Marcel, is part of a pedestrian zone, making eating outside very pleasant.

Rue Montorgueil is also not far from the Les Halles area, site of the former central food market of Paris, and still an area with many restaurants. It's also not far from the Marais, with its many restaurants and cafés.

While you're at Montorgueil, don't forget to pick up some fresh produce, cheese, meat, or fish from the great markets and shops!
