  5. NOTES : - When Les Halles in the centre of Paris was the site of the city's famous food market, late-night merrymakers could be found sitting shoulder to shoulder with the butchers eating onion soup from midnight to dawn in busy bistros. This combination of cheese, bread and onions was said to restore strength. Today the market has gone but the soup lives on, no longer a midnight meal but a popular first course during the winter months in Paris.
