Le Petit Marché is on rue Béarn, a small street just north and directly off of the Place des Vosges. Le Petit Marché is not for those who want a quiet, romantic dinner. It’s busy, noisy, jam-packed café perfect for a quick lunch and people-watching.
Most of the staff speak English. Start with the Chinese salad or the ceviche. You’ll find French cuisine with Asian influences such as fresh tuna tartar with toasted sesame seeds served with a Thai sauce. Main courses are served with small bowls of mashed potatoes and green beans. Other recommended dishes include the cod, lamb, steak tartare with Asian spices, and the succulent duck breast in a honey sauce.
As we were leaving the café, the waiters at the small bar offered us a complimentary digestif!
