It all started with a chef whose nickname was ‘La Vieille’ – ‘the Old Woman’ – though she was only 25. Adrienne was exactly like her cuisine: French and authentic, a real strong temperament. She made a success of Chez La Vieille for more than 30 years. All the spirit of Les Halles remains in the walls of Chez la Vieille and in its recipes.
Daniel Rose fell in love with Chez La Vieille the first time he ate there in 2009.
Today thanks to him, Chez La Vieille has reopened more joyful and ‘canaille’ than ever.
You can stand, you can sit, you can share it all….
Come and sit at the zinc bar, La Vieille will take good care of you!

Daniel Rose started to cook because he likes to eat. Before becoming a chef, Daniel studied ancient Greek, dreamed of kayaking from Texas to Guatemala, and even tried to join the French Foreign Legion. Having moved to Paris to complete University, he fell in love with French cuisine and started to cook for himself. He began to learn on a coal burning stove in Brittany, and he is still learning today. On his way he met Marie-Aude and probably took the best decision of his entire life: marry her. From the 16 seats at the very first Spring on rue de la Tour d’Auvergne, to the today’s Spring on rue Bailleul, 10 years have passed. Willie and Otto were born. La Bourse et la Vie too. Chez La Vieille re-opens and Le Coucou is taking off.
‘Le meilleur est à venir !’
We take orders until the day before at the latest.
Takeaways: your dishes are waiting for you at the Chez La Vieille outdoor counter on the day and time slot requested.
