In these days of ever-changing restaurant fads, a few places never change. La Poule au Pot, one of the all-night restaurants that lingers in Les Halles from its days as the wholesale food market, feels much as it must have done when it opened in 1935. The star turn is still poule au pot, the poached chicken with stuffing that was the favourite dish of King Henri IV. The late hours ensure a scattering of actors and showbiz personalities (witnessed in little brass plaques), in a convivial atmosphere, though staff are very friendly and welcoming to all.
