Au Pied de Cochon

Brasserie in Louvre & Les Halles

Enduring brasserie Au Pied de Cochon, with huge mirrors, crimson banquettes and frosted-glass lamps, opens around the clock, just as it did when workers at the former Les Halles wholesale markets started and ended their day here. Specialities include sensational crouton-filled onion soup topped with melted Emmental cheese, pigs' trotters, tails, ears and snouts, and spectacular shellfish platters.
