Restaurants near the Gard du Nord

We will be returning from a whirlwind daytrip to London around 9 p.m. on a Thursday. Any recommendations near the Gard du Nord for dinner?

    It's a pretty horrid area but the Terminus Nord brasserie is a reliable choice if you want brasserie staples. Usual good oysters etc. Steak tartare not bad either.

      I was actually going to recomend the same thing, so instead I will second that.

        I would challenge the "horrid area" statement. Other than that Chez Michel is great.

        Chez Michel is very close to the Gare du Nord and has been a favorite of ours for many years. We recommend it to everyone who travels to Paris. Great food in a lively atmosphere.

          Chez Michel is one of my two favorites in Paris (the other is Taira in the 17th).

          My suggestion is really an anti-suggestion: AVOID the Indian restaurants in the Passage Brady near the Gare du Nord. They are recommended in several guide books, but trust me, be afraid. Be very afraid....

            No problem there since my hubby hates Indian food. :)

              +1. Never been too impressed with them either, nor those towards La Chapelle. I do frequent the Indian superettes for spices and rice, however.
