Boucherie Becquerel

113 Rue St.-Antoine
Paris , France

The first thing that will draw your attention to Boucherie Becquerel on Rue St. Antoine is the aroma of roasting chicken. Set up in glass cases on the sidewalk, beneath this butcher shop's red overhang, spits of rotisserie chicken slowly turn while shelves of potatoes below cook in the fat and juices. Few meals please as much as a crispy skinned chicken with a moist inside, juicy potatoes, fine cheese, and a bottle of good wineall of which can be bought in this arrondissement to accompany Becquerel's quality meats. The shop also sells fresh rabbit, pork, veal, kidneys, blood sausage, and cuts of beef, including tripe and tongue. In addition, Becquerel offers pâtés, terrines, salads, and ready-to-go foods such as kabobs and roasts with dried fruits and herbs.
