I have been following mention of 404 in Paris but can't seem to find any info with google.
Would someone please describe the food and give me location.

Thanks

  1. Cityvox is a great site for info, comments and photos. It's in French, but has some comments about 404 in English as well as a map with the location.
    You can use the page for any resto, hotel, bar, café, etc., of course.

      Has anyone eaten here and at L'homme bleu in the 11th? L'homme was our "neighborhood" Berber place in the past. We will be staying in the Marais at both ends of our trip to France in the Fall.

        Roxie- I have not eaten at l'homme bleu even though it is right up the street from me (it's often full) but I have eaten at the 404 often. It's much more of a scene, lots of trendy people because it's in a trendy neighborhood. The owner also made a splash when he opened some restaurants in London (Momo). You have to factor all this in. L'Homme bleu has been around for a long time, well before the surrounding neighborhood became fashionable. It has a stellar reputation, even after all these years. I suspect it's more of a home-cooking kind of place. (It's also the fave of some of my North African friends.) It's also on the exact opposite end of the Marais from 404. So you may just be spoiled by having two great North African addresses within walking distance!

    2. I ate at 404 last year and wasn't that impressed. The food is OK but I have had better North African food in Paris. A lot of its reputation is based on the decor and party atmosphere as it is still quite a hip place to have meals with friends.
