I am spending a week in Paris between August 9 and 15 at an apartment near Republique and Oberkampf metro stations.
I have been reading quite a few threads on this website and cross-referencing what is open during the month of August on Paris by Mouth. At the end of the day, I have had a very tough time putting together a list of places that I want to go to because there are so many restaurants and to be quite honest, we are overwhelmed.
If anyone could put forward some suggestions for good value places in my neighbourhood, I would be very grateful. In particular, I am looking for some good bistros and places with good atmosphere (we are 30 years old).
In addition, if you have any recommendations for great bakeries/cheese shops/ markets etc. in this neighbourhood, I would also be very grateful.
Thanks in advance.
