Do not even think about visitng Georges the restuarnat at the Pompidou. Lots of ridiculous looking waiters whose brains are somewhere else. 

we had the worst service, terrible food at overinflated prices. . when we told the matire d that our waiter was not bringing food or wine as ordered he started to argue with us. Scallops---36 euro were six frozen scallops cooked with no seasoning and no vegetables and a bowl of undercooked rice..Cod was a greasy mess of something tasting like fish. .... Avoid at all costs

Üt, by R-Bag : Brilliant clown show every Thursday, Friday, Saturday night at tiny Théâtre Clavel, metro station Pyrénées. Excellent music, laughs for everyone, for kids, for grownups, and most importantly even for people without a word of French. Buy a ticket or pay upon liking, on your way out! Until Dec. 29th.
