Venue Info

“The Smoking Dog” has plenty of old-world charm in the décor and decent service, along with a smattering of kitschy dog statues all over the place. This restaurant was once the hangout for the market men who worked at Les Halles, the wholesale market that once stood just in front. Today, it’s a modest spot that many seek out to experience the Paris of yesteryear, with familiar French dishes, including plenty of oysters. The prix fixe is also a fairly good deal for this part of town.
