Choucroute was the beloved meal by the French Royals in the 18th century. Also the Garde Royale liked the meal. Around the Palais Royal, there were a lot of restaurants and inns serving choucroute in this part of Paris to supply the demand. To this day, you can find this habbit here.
The Palais-Royal (French pronunciation: [pa.lɛ ʁwa.jal]), originally called the Palais-Cardinal, is a palace located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. The screened entrance court faces the Place du Palais-Royal, opposite the Louvre. The larger inner courtyard, the Cour d’Honneur, has since 1986 contained Daniel Buren’s site-specific art piece Les Deux Plateaux, known as Les Colonnes de Buren. In 1830 the Cour d’Honneur was enclosed to the north by what was probably the most famous of Paris’s covered arcades, the Galerie d’Orléans. Demolished in the 1930s, its flanking rows of columns still stand between the Cour d’Honneur and the popular Palais-Royal Gardens.
The Palais-Royal was originally called the Palais-Cardinal, because it was the residence of Cardinal Richelieu. He asked architect Jacques Lemercier who also created the chapel at the Sorbonne.
