When night falls, I will go to my new favorite restaurant, perched 7 floors above the oberkamph district with soaring views till scare coeur. Benoît Dumas le chef treats you to the most amazing dinner which consists of a fixed menu in this modern, industrial themed environment. And yet it's all so charmingly *French*.
On Sunday I will do a little bit of history and go to the Museum of the art decoratif who present a new exhibition' La mecanique des dessous, une histoire indiscrete de la silhouette ' this exhibition explores the ‘underworld’ of female and male undergarments such as the fly, the pannier, the corset, the crinoline,...
On monday direction Drouot, and the Bouillon Chartier for a real french lunch. I wouldn't say Chartier has the best quality French food in Paris, but if you're looking for a Parisian cafe experience, this is probably the best you can get at great prices!! And, if you've never had escargots before and you want to find a place to try it, Chartier is the place to go! Of course this stop, will help me to be prepared for the Drouot auctions.
I will finish by a coffee in the bar and brasserie The Drouot who is rhythm by the actions that follow in the eponymous hotel nearby and for an unique experience you need to tried once ;)...

Because the good weather will be back soon, here are the best terasses to do in Paris :
A lovely Sunday with my kids in Paris. I started the day with a strong coffee, fresh orange juice and a baguette at La Coupole Brasserie in 14eme arrondissemnet. So many stories and legends around this brasserie. This Art deco jewel welcomed many left bank artist including Joseph Kessel & Hemingway.The bassement dancehall was once a favorite of Josephine Baker, De Beauvoir and Sartre. Before going to see my friend Marion, I decided to bring my kids to visit my old life, and visit the 'Marche Cours de Vincennes' between Boulevard Picpus and Arnold Netter, my Lycee and we also had the suprise to meet an old boyfriend :)
Our day brought us to the elegant and contemporary 'Eiffel Tower'. This iron tower was built for the Universal Exhibition of 1880. The Eiffel Tower has so much sense to me, because of my interest in the use of metal in the design and architecture over the centuries. I have met my friend Marion who attends the Drouot school and we have had with my daughter and my son an afternoon of artistic discoveries. We went to the Palais de Tokyo who hosts temporary exhibitions spotligting contempory artists and trends in modern art.
And what a delightful surprise when we left, to see people dancing Rock'roll on the back of the Trocadero coffee shop.
We finally ended our day with a drink near the canal St Martin, where students, artists, forge a dynamic cosmopolitain center that has little to do with the Paris of post cards. With the cafes & quirky boutiques around the water & iron footbridges. On Sunday's 2 streets running parallel to the canal, Quai de Valmy & Quai de Jemmapes are reserved for pedestrians & cyclists perfect for renting bike & see the city from a fresh angle.
No, I have not disappeared, no, I have not traveled all over France with my beret and my baguette! But like every season, going to exhibition (Maison & Objet, first class) and looking for beautiful vintage furniture have taken me a lot of time ! http://www.littleparis.co.uk/new-arrivals.html
