Living near the Place des Vosges, Paris . . .

well, only for a week at Easter.

but i'd love to compile a list of nearby groceries and shops of all kind. including cafes, of course. could you tell me your favorites?

also, is it walkable to the Gare de Lyon?

merci,
melissa

Hi melissa,

Enter your address and gare de Lyon at www.mappy.com. Choose pedestrian.

La Guirlande de Julie restaurant, right on the Place des Vosges, is an old favorite of mine.

My apartment is on Place des Vosges and I can assure you that a simple walk to Rue St. Antoine will yield everything you could possibly need. Not only will you find several NYC-style grocery stores but also every imaginable delicacy item you might crave. I suggest you try them all and discover your own favorites. You'll also find some wonderful housewares stores and plenty of clothing, art, and antique shops, all within a five minute walk. Take lots of money.

Last three times I visited Paris, arriving at la Gare de Lyon by TGV, I always walked (with my small weekend bag), to stop by Place des Vosges , then on to Ile-St.Louis or Quartier Latin where I had my hotel. Gare de Lyon to Places des Vosges is 10 minutes walk via Place Bastille.

On the Place des Voges is Ma Bourgogne, a very nice little restaurant. Nearby is Bonfinger, the famous seafood bistro. This is a great lively area with lovely patisseries, etc.

A few blocks away in the Marais is a truly wonderful restarant called Le Pamphlet. We were in Paris for three nights in June and dined there twice. Make reservations for this one.

Good luck.

nycfoodsnob: on rue st. antoine . . . toward the bastille, or the other way? or both? all sounds wonderful. except the "lots of money" part!

Best place for day-to-day groceries is Monoprix basement on rue st. antoine (away from Bastille).
