I actually found this place online and was not disappointed. It's a small place, not far from the Gare St Lazare. The couscous was really good, as was the tagine. I would not hesitate to recommend or go back!

My wife and I stumbled across L'Avenir entirely by accident. It's a friendly little place, which produces a higher quality couscous than I've ever had in the UK! We made a point of returning to L'Avenir on a second trip to Paris recently and it...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
