Au Petit fer à Cheval

30 Rue Vieille du Temple
Paris , France

Surrounded by the fashionable boutiques of Le Marais and situated on the winding rue Vieille du Temple, Au Petit fer à Cheval is the place to go to have a film-like "Parisian moment." Enjoy conversation with the neighborhood's regulars at the horseshoe-shaped, marble bar (this cafe's name means "horseshoe") or choose a small table in the back. The decor of this more than 100-year-old eatery is retro Paris: vintage posters, reclaimed Metro benches, chandeliers, and tiled floors with decorative swirls. The fare, on the other hand, is typical French bistro, with the confit de canard being a particular favorite.
