I’ve been living my Parisian dream for the past four years and I can say that I still discover different places and new architecture every time I’m exploring the city. As a Paris-based editor, I feel the necessity to try all kind of new and trendy spots so that I can share my discoveries with readers. But also as a citoyenne de Paris I discover places that are not forcément that famous. I wanted to share these lesser known places with you even though the interiors are often not at all instagrammable but can assure you they are worth a visit.

Boulangerie Julien - it’s my (almost) daily place to go for croissants and baguettes. The most delicious is their ‘croissants aux amandes’

73 Avenue Franklin Roosevelt
75008


At Sacha Finkelswtajn, you can find the most incredibly delicious Yiddish patisserie. My favorite here is their strudel viennois.

27 Rue de Rosiers
75004


Mme Shawn is my favorite Thai restaurant. They serve really great food and have 3 locations, but my favorite is the one near Opera

40 Place du Marché Saint-Honoré
75001


Pho 11, it’s my favorite Vietnamese restaurant from an entire neighborhood dedicated to Cuisinie Asiatique. I love and recommend their Soupes Sattés

52 Rue Sainte-Anne
75002


From time to time, I take the métro especially to go to Oberkampf. There’s a little but great boulangerie there called Utopie. I always order a roulé sesame

20 Rue Jean Pierre Timbaud
75011

Beautiful Inspiration from the French Riviera

French Riviera during the Cannes Film Festival is always an endless source of inspiration. Since its debut in 1946, the event has been more than a celebration of the best films of the year. What makes the festival so magical is everything that comes with it: the parties, the meetings, the interviews, the photoshoots that take place during these two weeks. Perhaps the busy-ness around it does not allow one to take the proper time to see the beautiful landscape, but just in case you need some inspiration, here are a few photos to remember the good old times…

Places: Noto Restaurant, Paris

There is a restaurant in the 8th arrondissement in Paris, Noto, that I always wanted to tell you about. Haven’t had the chance to try it yet, but I really want to go, as I recently visited the small town of the same name, in Sicily, a polished city with beautiful palaces.
