Au Pied de Cochon Paris, Five Years Later

Finding a decent, late-night eatery in Paris (or in Europe in general) is a pain because most kitchens close between 11PM-1AM. Where to go for onion soup and steak at 2AM? Au Pied de Cochon! This brasserie has been around since 1946.

The last time I went here was back in December 2005 when I spent Christmas in Paris ALONE.

Five years later, I went back to Au Pied de Cochon with my friends Denni (of the Chic Muse) and Ruy.

I had onion soup, steak and some potatoes.

I haven’t eaten anything for almost two days before this meal.

It’s also my last night in Paris. I had three hours left before heading to the airport to go to Berlin.

What I wore: Gucci sunglasses, Kenzo sequined jacket, mother of pearl necklace from Balikbayan Handicrafts, Rad Hourani top, Rad Hourani shorts, Chanel bag and Finsk pony skin wedges.

It’s funny how Denni and I met in Florence then we saw each other again in Milan… and now we’re in Paris.

Fun times!

For those of you who need the address, Au Pied de Cochon is located at:

6 rue Coquilliere, 75001 Paris

They’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

That’s all!


  1. here in Copenhagen, kitchens are closed at around 9:30 pm, I think, because restaurants close at 10:00.
    I wish Danish people loved eating out instead of decorating their homes.

  2. I love that you and Denni from Chic Muse are hanging out in Paris eating late night at Au Pied. Ohh….the memories of my trips to Paris come flooding back!! I love Paris and hopefully soon I will be there again. Thanks for the post.

  3. This seems like a great restaurant to dine in on a cold and wintry weather, hearty meals and the red interior makes it very cosy.

  7. i will definitely visit this place the next time i will visit Paris. Their red plate look appetizing and the pork leg is inviting.

  8. I love your blog! I really enjoyed reading your blog posts and I am so jealous of you. I hope I can travel to different countries like you too. I want to stay at a boutique hotel in Paris or have a peaceful walk by St. Petersburg. I hope I could achieve this someday. I never got bored reading your blog, you have a way with words and I like your sense of humor as well. I would definitely come back here on your site when I have some more spare time. I hope you will keep on updating this site, I would love to keep up with you. Thanks for sharing your stories! Keep it up.
