A welcoming eatery with plenty of seating inside and out to enjoy all the people watching.
Folks come to Le Hibou (the owl) for the abundant outdoor seating and the interior decor with portraits of stoic ancestors, pastoral landscapes, and a spectacular aviary of bird taxidermy throughout its winding rooms at this unusually large Parisian eatery. The broad, distinctly “international” menu hits the spot with items like Caprese salad, burrata with eggplant and a steak tartar appropriate for an all-day café. The cocktail list is inventive (the Queen is Back served in a teacup) with dried fruits crowning many of the options. The sidewalk seating, lining the eatery, are highly prized and great for watching the bustling shoppers in this central location. The wine list is short and bland, but the vibe inside is sexy and cozy, so it's a fantastic destination for big groups or for breakfast, a mid-day break, coffee, or cocktails in a fabulous setting.
