Rue St-Dominique, Paris

(65+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Rue St-Dominique was renamed Rue St.-Dominique in 1631 after the Dominican monastery that opened on this street that year. The site has had many names over the years--chemin de la Longue Raye (1355), chemin des Treilles (1433), chemin Herbu des Moulins à Vent (1523), chemin de l'Oseraie (1527), chemin du Port (1530), chemin des Vaches (1542), chemin de la Justice, and chemin des Charbonniers.

The allure today stems from the fact that the street feels authentic--making visitors feel like natives as they wander past the bakeries, restaurants, shoe stores, kitchen shops, bistros, boutiques, and butcher shops. It's centrally located, close to many attractions, and offers stunning views of the Eiffel Tower.

  • On another side and benefiting especially at night from a point of view unusual on the Eiffel Tower, this shopping street is nice to meet in Parisian life swarming, a lot of small restaurants and bars, a street that is worth trying.

  • One of my favorite restaurants close to me. The food is great, and the interior is nice and chic. But most importantly, the service from both the waiters and managers is truly stellar. Always welcoming and attentive, I never feel let down by their efforts. It's what keeps me coming back as often as I can. Highly recommended.
  • This bistro is par for the course. There are hundreds of bistros in paris like bsd that can deliver the same kinds of meals. So the challenge becomes finding just the right ambiance, professional wait staff, etc. Not too jam packed, not cold or noisy music etc. BSD has great atmosphere. High ceilings, large widows, plush interior, warm lighting, good seating, low muffled music all add to a cozy experience. The food is fine, service is prompt but not rushed. This is a great place to either start a visit, or end a trip if you're done playing foodie and just want to relax.
  • This place is great for taking out-of-towners to show them that you know your stuff about the city. Even the decor is comfortable and adorable. I have friends from out of town who can't wait to come back to visit!
  • Amazing setting away from the touristy hustle and bustle of the Champ de Mars. Be sure to order the steak tartare and duck confit! One of our favorites on our week long stay!
  • Ask for Mathew for an excellent service. Try duck breast. Very good food, very good wine.
