Chez la Vieille

Chez la Vieille in Paris from Daniel Rose |

Chef Daniel Rose of Spring restaurant has purchased Chez La Vieille and plans to reopen this historic Les Halles institution in January 2016. Here’s an excerpt from our article about his plans:

“Chez la Vieille occupies an unassuming corner at the intersection of two quiet streets, Bailleul and l’Arbre Sec, between the Louvre and what’s left of Les Halles. It was opened by the formidable Adrienne Biasin back in 1960 and catered – like most restaurants in this neighborhood – to a clientele of workers from the nearby Les Halles market. When the towering iron and glass pavillions were torn down in 1968 and the market was transferred to the sanitary suburb of Rungis, the “old lady’s” place remained as a comfort for locals who were (and still are) mourning the loss of “the belly of Paris.”
