It is a very popular place and depending on what time of day, and events on in the city, you would be tight on 45 minutes. I suggest going back for dinner or spending an afternoon at their street tables.

This is a well run restaurant and a manager always seemed present and in charge. My hunch is later in the evening it would be difficult to have a group in and out in 45 minutes though.

Every night, drinks flow generously as our kitchen serves up fresh, pub-style cooking. The menu: soulful staples, original cocktails and friendly service in a classic tavern setting. The space, originally a 19th-century warehouse, preserves much of its old-school furnishings but with a few novel kicks. And come summer, we welcome the warm weather with our big terrace on rue de la Commune.
