La Vache Acrobate
77 Rue Amelot 75011
Great for a beer or pitcher of wine. I spent many a morning and evening here. I didn’t know one can eat here, but according to reviews on the web, it’s quite good. Free WiFi.
I managed to get into this stuffed-to-the-gills restauarnt. The ambiance is wonderful – bustling, but not too noisy, with delicious aromas emanating from the kitchen. I had the Carpaccio de pesce spada e melone (espadon et melon / swordfish with melon) as antipasti and Linguine alle vongole (palourdes / clam). It was all delicious, particularly the linguine. A 25cl carafe of red rounds everything off perfectly. it is well reviewed on the web.
Though situated in the 11th, these are a few minutes walk from Le Marais.
