Late night (after 24:00) restaurants in Paris
Which restaurants would you recommend with the kitchen open after midnight and maybe even 1am?
I live in the 13th, but interested in places all over.
Of those so far suggested, the top of my list is Chez Denise... but, sigh, closed at weekends.
I'm a little put off by the price-quality ratio at la Maison de l'Aubrac. If you are not careful, the tab can be very hefty.
The Grand Café des Capucines on the boulevard des Capucines near l'Opéra (another 7/7 24/24 place) is a pretty safe -- and surprisingly enjoyable-- bet for fruits de mer but I wouldn't hazard a full meal unless very drunk. And very convenient for the noctilien/ night bus from Opéra to Place d'Italie and other stops in the 13th.
If you are under 40, there are a couple of late night restos in the Oberkampf quartier: Le Café Charbon on the rue Oberkampf; my fave Porokhane (Senegalese cuisine) on the rue Mayet; and a few others I've never tried.
In the 13th, I've noticed some after-midnight eating on the Butte aux Cailles... but the names of the restos never registered... sorry. Same for Chinatown, I've seen some places open at 1am or so but never tried any. (Ptipois, we need you)
I only noticed them from the car while negotiating a confusing detour that night so the details are very blurry. After a bit of googling, Villa d'Or on the rue Baudricourt between the ave de Choisy and ave d'Ivry seems to be open until 2am and to fit the detour route. The second place was probably on the same street or on the ave de Choisy between r Baudricourt and r Caillaux but can't really pin it down.
