11e (Popincourt)

11th arrondissement of Paris
Popincourt derives it’s name from Jean de Popincourt (Chief President of the Parliment, who had a county seat in the vicinity. This area became known as the Village of Popincourt (The History of Paris)

It is bounded by four well known points of reference:
-Place de République
-Place de Bastille
-Place de la Nation and
-Père Lachaise Cemetery (which is actually on the edge of the 20th arrondisement)

What we like about the 11e:

Les Domaines Qui Montent
136 boulevard Voltaire (Métro: Voltaire / Charonne)
Place de Bastille

Naturalia 33 boulevard Voltaire
O.K. it’s just a European health food chain, but the stores are disbursed about Paris, there is always one nearby. We like the vibe, the selection of food and produce – we buy organic apples, cloth grocery bags, and these WONDERFUL miniature dark fruit-grain-seed-apricot (slightly sticky) bread-loaves that we seek-out every trip to Paris.

Place de République

Dinner: Order the lamb shoulder at Au Passage (33-1/43-55-07-52; $)
