The area around 52 Faubourg Saint Denis has become an epicenter of good and hip restaurants lately and it is quite a busy area all day long, with the Indian and Pakistani joints in the Passage Brady and the African and Chinese merchants all around. But don’t get discouraged, it is safe and the food at 52 is fab. They do not take reservations, as many new restaurants in Paris, so be patient. It is open all day long for a gorgeous cup of coffee in the morning and tapas with wine all day long, but the lunch and, more specifically dinner, are the main drawcards to the place. I stress dinner for the nice atmosphere with the the lights and the crowd. Order a few small dishes (nothing is big here, so you can taste many flavors and, better still, share), some biodynamic glass of wine and enjoy the experience.
