The covered passages are a Parisian invention. They were built between 1820 and 1840 to allow Parisians to be able to shop sheltered from the weather. These galleries with magnificent glass roofs and wrought iron lampposts became the meeting place for the Parisian bourgeoisie. And now, they allow us to plunge back into an era that is unfortunately over.
I totally fell in love with the retro facade of this restaurant. Located in the 4th district of Paris, near the Seine, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and Square Jean XXIII, the restaurant Au Vieux Paris. Its gourmet cuisine is typically French, inspired by the South West.
