l’Hopital Saint Louis inside the brick facade you’ll quickly notice the resemblance to the Place des Vosges, but it is infinitely quieter and more peaceful here.
Before you reach the hospital, you’ll pass two restaurants on avenue Richerand that are both recommended by le Fooding. The first is le Cambodge, a Cambodian restaurant; be sure to go early or be prepared to wait in line.
The second is the well-known wine bar Philou. It’s a great place to return to at night or even for lunch if you can get a reservation.
A few doors down from Philou is Marty Tattoo. They offer gorgeous, artistic tattoos, and if you are not ready to get a permanent one, you can get a temporary.
