One evening last month, we went out for a few drinks with a group of friends in the Montorgueil area. As the night wore on, we found ourselves getting hungry but at 11pm, we struggled to find any good Paris restaurants that were still open.

Finally, we decided on le ‘Pied de Cochon’, one of the last Parisian brasseries that is still serving food very late at night. Le Pied de Cochon is a classic Parisian brasserie that has been around since 1947.

Located in the super central Les Halles neighborhood, it’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, making it a popular spot for locals (and tourists alike), especially during Paris Fashion Week.

Late-night Paris diner, Le Pied de Cochon

First and foremost, Le Pied de Cochon is known for its namesake dish, the pig’s foot. This dish is definitely not for the faint of heart, as it consists of a large, tender pig’s foot served with potatoes and a side of mustard.

While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it is definitely worth trying if you are feeling adventurous. In addition to the pig’s foot, the restaurant serves a wide variety of classic French dishes, such as onion soup, escargots, and steak frites. The food is hearty and flavorful, and the portions are generous.

The atmosphere of Le Pied de Cochon is truly peculiar at night, as bustling as during the day, yet with this special feeling you’re experiencing something different, almost dreamlike.

The interior is one of a classic Parisian brasserie, with high ceilings, tiled floors, and large mirrors. The walls are adorned with vintage posters and black and white photographs, adding to the nostalgic feel. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the service is quick and efficient.

Another thing to note is that the prices at Le Pied de Cochon are quite reasonable, especially considering the size of the portions. While it’s not the cheapest place to eat in Paris, it’s definitely worth the price for the quality of the food and the experience.

Le Pied de Cochon is a great choice for a late-night dinner with friends, offering delicious food and a lively atmosphere that will leave you with unforgettable memories.
