The burger trend has still not faded out in Paris, and after trying many "burger spots", this cafe has really great hamburgers. The hamburger bun is shaped as a heart (appropriately named the "Love Burger"), and it was cooked perfectly. Looking forward to coming back!

We were at Cafe Etienne Marcel after dinner (evenings 11 & 12 October 2013): Perfect place for drinks! BEST Cuba Libre I’ve ever had! Compliments to the barkeeper and the DJ for the extraordinary sound! We will come again!

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
