It all started with a woman cook nicknamed ‘La Vieille’ though she was only 25. Adrienne was exactly like her cuisine: french and authentic, a real strong temperament. She created and made the success of this place for more than 30 years. And all the Halles’spirit remains in its walls, all its taste in the recipes.
Daniel Rose fell in love with Chez La Vieille since the very first time he ate there, in 2009.
Today thanks to him, Chez La Vieille reopens more joyful and ‘canaille’ than ever.
From noon to midnight, you can stand, you can seat, you can share it all….

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 !’
Oleg Olexin met Daniel by concidence, started cooking by chance, and dislikes answering questions. For him it is all about giving pleasure, and sensibility, that’s it. Born in Ukraine and raised in Israel, where he experienced everything about a restaurant from being a dishwasher to a waiter before becoming a chef. He landed one day in Paris and stayed there. Ask anyone who worked with Oleg and they’ll all say the same: Oleg is totally unique. A mix of grace and generosity in his gestures, as technical as authentic in his actions, he immensely takes care without taking himself seriously. Reluctant to any form of pose or attitude, there is something strong and simple about him, a sincerity. And his plates look alike when they reach you.
