Need recs near the Renaissance Paris Vendome Hotel

We prefer to stay in the neighborhood ( First Arrondisement or nearby) after a full day of sightseeing so if you have favorite ethnic or fish/shellfish suggestions for us, we'd be most appreciative. Also we'd like some reasonable places to catch breakfast. Our preference is for moderate prices! Thanks, in advance, for your help- we know it is a pricey area!

  1. You may enjoy the Bistro Volnay on Rue Volney, just behind the Place Vendome in the direction of the Opera Garnier. It is fairly priced for this area and popular, so reserve before you go.

      When we stay in this part of the 1st, we usually start the day at Le Castiglione, and end the day at the same place. Great Dover sole, but no bargains in this high rent district. Goumard has fine seafood as well, now downscaled in terms of prices. I second Volnay as well.

        Agreed, even under the new chef the Volnay is above average.
