Twilight in the Haut Marais after a full (or ‘long’ in the words of my husband) afternoon shopping…near the intersection where Iro meets Sandro meets Maje meets Zadig + Voltaire.
Late afternoon espresso next to an unexpected visitor at Café de Flore, the legendary literary café that once hosted Hemingway and Truman Capote. Celebrity Alert: We spotted Lou Doillon hanging out in the corner…perhaps the highlight of my trip!
The rosy sitting room of our hotel, Le Belle Juliette.
The tiny kitchen at Frenchie
. I booked a reservation at this cult-favorite culinary destination months ahead and it was well worth it! A gem that will please the extreme Foodie, cool-hunter or anyone simply looking for a cozy + delicious meal.
Delicious dessert + Sauternes after a blind four course tasting menu at Spring
. Maybe I am just a simpleton, but the jury is still out on this ‘serious’ experience.
We rambled over to Ralph’s
for a Monday night bite sans-reservation and could not get in. You heard it here, the Frenchies love Americana. Thankfully I got my fix at RL in Chicago over Christmas.
Post dinner cocktails at L’Hotel
, the hush-hush spot for cool cats like Johnny Depp and Helena Christensen. Interesting fact: it was the former home (and death place) of Oscar Wilde.
Macaroons! This shot had to be the finale as we would stop for these addictive delicacies every day and save them in the hotel room for a late night snack.
