Pizza Express is where the Eastside Tavern used to be.
After a bit of a siesta after a Saturday of eating and drinking I headed off to see what restaurants were hiding in the laneways of Saint Michel to see what the options were. I strolled down to Boulevard Saint-Germain, up Rue Dante and Rue de l’Hotel Colbert and Quai du Montebello but nothing really took my fancy, and those that did were full. Shakespeare and Company was closed for the day and I’d started to lose hope.
About 50m past Shakespeare and Company was Café le Petit Pont. The place was bustling but had a few tables available so I went in and was given a seat facing towards Notre Dame Cathedral.
After a couple of beers at Frog XVI, I got the bus back to Saint-Michel and as I was walking back to my hotel I started to feel a bit hungry.
There’s a large Italian restaurant on the corner of Rue Saint-Séverin and Rue de la Harpe called Rim Café.
After walking probably 10km around Paris during the day I ended up back at Albe Hôtel and after a rest I decided to try another restaurant close by to the hotel for dinner.
After a quick snooze at Albe Hôtel after the flight from Hong Kong I was looking for some sustenance. Luckily the area around Saint Michel is full of bars and restaurants so I didn’t have to go to far.
I did a bit of a walk around the neighborhood to see what options were on offer before deciding on a small pizza restaurant called Pizza Sarno, more because there were tables available and there was an English menu more than anything else.
