Au Pied de Cochon is a famous traditional French restaurant in Paris, France. Located in the Les Halles district, the restaurant has been a Parisian institution since it opened its doors in 1947. The name translates to “The Pig’s Foot,” which is also a traditional dish served at the restaurant.

Au Pied de Cochon is particularly noted for being open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, never closing its doors since it first opened. It was especially popular with market workers in its early years due to its round-the-clock hours, and it has remained a beloved spot for both Parisians and tourists.

The menu at Au Pied de Cochon is centered around classic French and Parisian cuisine. Pork dishes, particularly those using offal, are a specialty – the pig’s trotter (pied de cochon) served stuffed is one of the restaurant’s signature dishes. They also serve other traditional French dishes like onion soup, escargots, and a variety of seafood platters.
