Le Quartier d’Aligre: A Foodie Haven Near Bustling Bastille

Erin Dahl shares her favorite addresses in Paris' Quartier d'Aligre on HiP Paris.

Blé Sucré, Erin Dahl

The Quartier d’Aligre is one of my favorite pockets of Paris, and one I am lucky enough to call home. Located just southeast of Bastille, the area has a little bit of everything: bustling shops on rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine (including a Marks & Spencer and sizeable Monoprix) and easy metro access, but also calm streets and a true neighborhood feel. I even brought my caviste a portion of blanquette de veau a few weeks back. The beloved Marché d’Aligre, a bustling daily market located on/around the Place d’Aligre, is only the start. Here are some of my other favorite addresses:
