One of the few remnants of Les Halles's raucous all-night past is this brasserie, which has been open every day since 1946. Now run by the Frères Blanc group, it still draws both a French and a foreign crowd with round-the-clock hours and trademark traditional fare such as seafood platters, breaded pigs' trotters, beer-braised pork knuckle with sauerkraut, and cheese-crusted onion soup. It's perfect stick-to-your-rib fare for a winter's day or to finish off a bar crawl. The dining room, with its white tablecloths and little piggy details, feels resolutely cheerful, and it's open 24/7.

Only go if you have been out all night and need a food fix, otherwise there are much better choices in the area for real food.

I was a little disappointed in this place. But overall, I consider it a good value. I had the steak frites which were good but not great. I love great frites! These were a little disappointing but good considering the price. My wife had an oyster platter. This was about a dozen different types of oysters and was expensive. If you are looking for a popular place with good value food and decent atmosphere. This is the place.
