We have lots of back up options for dinner on this day as Pizzeria Popolare is always busy. So busy in fact that I have only been once because the lines are always around the corner. It’s one of the many delicious restaurants from the Big Mama Group which as you can see, has a pretty major following around town. Reservations are not accepted so go early (they open at 6:30pm) or be prepared to wait.
If you aren’t feeling Italian, or the line, here are some other suggestions around the neighborhood. If you can snag a reservation at Le Comptoir de la Gastronomie, Frenchie, Verjus (prix fixe menu), or Ellsworth you won’t be disappointed. If you want to just stroll in a causal spot, you can try L’Escargot back on Rue Montorgueil, and of course, it goes without saying that you must try the escargot!
