Family-friendly restuarants in Marais (near Republique Metro)
The four of us (with 9-month ols baby) will stay in an apartment near the Republique Metro stop for a week. We plan to stay close to the apartment at night for dinners. Any advices on good, mid-priced to cheap restuarants around here? Definitely have to have Frence, but would love to get some Chinese, Japanese, Thai, ect also. Oh, anyone knows about good market around here?

There are quite a number of café/bistro/restaurants all around the place de la République, so you could do a bit of prospecting. One is a Léon de Bruxelles, which is a popular chain, but I haven't eaten there.

These are the restuarants just on the square:

There will be a fair range in the surrounding streets, depending on where you are and how far away you're prepared to go.

The nearest street market is, I think, Marché des Enfants Rouges. There is a Monoprix supermarket on rue du Temple that stays open quite late, even on Sundays, I believe (or at least, someone once asked me directions to it in the belief that it did).

If you walk a bit north along the Canal St. Martin, you will come to the Rue des Vinaigriers on your left (carful - not obvious: look for the short staircase down). You will see there one of our favorite casual, red-check-tablecloth (literally!) Paris restos, the Restaurant de Bourgogne.
