Dinner before/after cinema near Gds Boulevards/Opera


Looking for suggestions for dinner before or after the cinema around Grands Boulevards/Opera metro areas. Been in this position a couple of times. First time we went for a Thai and ended up missing the film. The last time I found a very welcoming piadina place. Not somewhere you might come to Paris for, obviously, but very good for light, quick, reasonably priced meal and open in the evenings from 7-11pm so handy for before or after an 8-ishpm showing. Details:

Piadineria artigianale Riccione
7 rue Geoffroy Marie, 75009, 0147702961,

Most piadinas priced around 5-9 euros, also do plates or charcuterie, cheese, to share.

I can highly recommend the porchetta, squaquerone and roquette piadina. All the ingredients are good quality, sourced from Italy.

Any other suggestions for places open early and/or late, and/or quick eats around the cinemas, gratefully received.

Cheers all
