Went to JinJuu's upstairs (Anju) last night on Kingly St. A Korean twist on American street food. Loved it. Cocktails are deece too. Good for 5+ people so you can try a load of different things. Recommend.

Somewhere on Place Des Vosges I'd say, that's very near Bastille. Amazing space, the oldest square in the city. Well romantic like.

There's a place called Chez Paul which is decent and not too costly.

Need a good late night eatery in Central for tonight, something along the lines of Princi would be perfect.
