An Evening in the Batignolles quartier, Paris

We (DH, 16yr DD and I) will be making a repeat visit to Paris this fall. In researching the foodie part of the trip (mostly on Chowhound), I've come up with a number of restaurants in the Batignolles quartier.

If we had dinner in the area, is it a lively / interesting enough area for us to spend the evening there, walking around, a pre-dinner drink at a cafe, etc? We customarily eat at 8-9, and it will be late enough in the year that the sun will have set well before then. I do like the idea of being in an area that has fewer tourists, and exploring a new part of the city.

A walk along Boulevard des Batignolles in the direction of Place de Clichy is delightful, because it lines up with the domes of Sacré Coeur.

I'm not sure at what times the parks close right now, but both the Square des Batignolles and the Parc Martin Luther King are worth visits.

sure, they have a really nice park there, but that wouldn't be good for evening. I enjoyed the Cite des Fleurs, also (which may be private, not sure, I was with someone who was a resident). Paris Tourist info and walking tour

Thanks for the information. Might be a good place for a daytime visit, as well.
