Zerda Café

Often described as Moroccan cuisine, Zerda Café is more accurately Algerian, and one of the first such restaurants in Paris. A favorite since 1946, though under a different name at the time, Zerda is best known for its couscous and has an entirely separate menu just for this beloved grain-like pasta (they can also whip up gluten-free options). Similarly, the separate tajine menu boasts an abundant variety of hearty stews, while the rest of the menu offers several spiced salads, soups, and North African breads to complement other regional favorites. 


Saturday and Monday: 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.; Tuesday through Friday: Noon to 2:30 p.m., 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. 


Mid-Range ($$)

Andy’s Notes:

 If you’re a serious foodie, you may prefer stopping into Zerda Café’s second location in the bohemian 17th Arrondissement after spending some time working up an appetite at the famous Batignolles organic market.
