Déjeuner près des Halles Notre Dame

This is a better view of yesterday's restaurant. The building is one of four covered markets, each with its own name and surrounding market place, visible here through the arch. The names are "herbs square", "meat square", "flour square" and "tide square". All together, they form Notre-Dame market.
------------------------------
Voici une vue plus générale du restaurant d'hier, donnant sur l'un des bâtiments des Halles Notre Dame, composés de quatre halles dénommées "carré aux herbes", "carré à la viande", "carré à la farine" et "carré à la marée". Les carrés entourent la place du marché, ici visible par l'arche.

CLDQMPR (Very American to omit vowels, I know):

Yes, there is something about Wal-mart. You know what to expect and you can get everything under one roof, even if one item is one mile from the other in the polar opposite ends of the store!!! The French blogs, yours included, have been featuring a lot of royal blue lately. It seems to be used a bit more in France than in the US.

As always, I just love your photos. They make me want to hop on a flight to Paris NOW!

Oh, that looks so inviting. Sitting in the shade and letting the day go by over a snack and bottle of wine.

Waow ! Les couleurs "pétantes" sur ce message et celui d'hier ! Je peux pas m'empêcher de jeter un oeil sur le cageot plein de pêches juteuses à souhait plutôt que sur le vide.

Je rentre de Paris, j'ai mis débardeur et short, et pourtant je meurs de chaud.
J'ai été dans deux bistrots et pourtant je meurs de soif ; je me boirais bien encore une eau plate à cette terrasse, à l'ombre a la fois d'un tilleul (?) et d'un parasol

Interesting names of the squares:) Beautiful place and great and inviting restaurant!

Jacob said...

Looks like a very nice place. I think France has cornered the market, so to speak, on great restaurants!

Have you eaten here often?

Oh that appears to be such a wonderful to spend a day!

Oh, I love those names!
They sound so much better than "Wal-mart." :)
