Paris: Whether it’s time for Fashion Week or just to greet the arrival of spring, there is always a good reason to go to Paris for a few days. And I love to share my favorite places at the moment with you.
CHEZ CASTEL: I love going for dinner with my Parisian friends to Chez Castel and hit the dance floor in between repas to enjoy les nuits Parisiennes in Saint Germain!
LA BELLE EPOQUE: I always enjoyed the space and the French style at La Belle Epoque. During Fashion Week it is the perfect “m’as-tu vu” place and the people are very stylish as if they just stepped down the runway directly to la Belle Epoque.
LE BARBE A PAPA: The perfect place to enjoy a great brunch on Sunday. I like the cosy ambiance and great French food,
MONSIEUR BLEU: For a lunch appointment I like to go to Monsieur Bleu for the elegant interior of the restaurant and the amazing view on the terrace. What a nice feeling to drink a good glass of chilled champagne at noon and enjoy the view of the Tour Eiffel at the same time.
HOMIES: For lunch or dinner, Homies is the new great place to enjoy good tapas. My favorite one is the Chicken Tandoori at low temperature! Un délice!
CAFE DE FLORE: The place to be no matter what time and which season you are in Paris! I love sitting on the terrace around 6pm with a fresh glass of Chardonnay and watch the Parisians from behind my French newspaper. A fantastic place to see some celebrities and the French fashionistas.
RESTAURANT CLOVER: The first time that I looked into the menu of Clover restaurant, I found it all very interesting. I had a fantastic food experience when I tried my meal – very original and tasteful. I love the idea to eat with your fingers for the first course! My fav’ dish there is the steamed brioche with grated truffles or mushrooms, or la Croûte de quinoa with aubergine and saté. Try it, you will love it!
LES DEUX MAGOTS: If there is a place where I go to enjoy and feel the real Parisian brasserie spirit, it is always is at Les Deux Magots. I can sit there for hours and watches the waiters in their black and white uniform running around every table with a big smile. I can’t leave Les Deux Magots without having enjoyed their old-fashioned hot chocolate. This place set the mood of Saint Germain: so Parisian, so chic but relaxed!
PISCINE MOLITOR: As I love to go swimming in the morning before I start my day, I was looking for a hotel with a nice pool. I have found out that the iconic pool from the 1920s called Piscine Molitor re-opened last summer. The hotel is very nice and the pool of course legendary!
