A couple of people have asked me where this actually is, so if you do want to visit it whilst in the area for PBP

We had a look into various points of PBP interest in 2011. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKvmeb5XVvU

Out of the various points the most interesting weren't directly linked to PBP. Point Zero is next to Notre Dame, and the Au Pied de Cochon is a brasserie with a pork-based menu. https://www.pieddecochon.com/en/ as it's open 24 hours it's a handy point for validation.

Validating a Fl├Ęche brevet card at 4am is an experience in itself at Au Pie de Cochon. Never before I had such a great reception at such a high class restaurant.

Yep, though it wasn't 4am for me.

And YACFer's can go there, as it was reviewed in the Guardian. It's next to what used to be the Les Halles market, so the porters were the overnight customers in its heyday.
