  • Paris: la prochaine fois. Part ONE.

    if i only had two days for my next visit to one of my favorite cities. each cultural institution is matched with a restaurant, a bar/café, and/or nearby shops.

  • Jardin des Tuileries

    1

    Garden

    when the weather is nice, i can't imagine anywhere else to go before or after the louvre. coffee can be purchased at the télescope on rue villédo, then go here!

  • Colette

    2

    Department Store

    if you commit yourself to wandering near the louvre, then, you might as well make your way over here. it would not be awful.

  • Du Pain et des Idées

    3

    Bakery

    there are some who say that this is the best bakery in paris. for me, it's on the route between canal st. martin and the musée des artes et metiers.

  • Canal Saint-Martin

    4

    Canal

    an inspiring walk along quai de valmy, starting in the north near point éphémère, south towards the seine. bookstores en route, like Artazart Design Bookstore.

  • The Broken Arm

    5

    Boutique

    if it's coffee that you need. you know. many friends recommend it.

  • Musée des Arts et Métiers

    6

    Museum

    an art and science museum that feeds the curious deconstructing gadget nerd in me. i find it very useful to go here when in search of inspiration.

  • Le Derrière

    7

    French

    secret backroom club accessed by a wardrobe at top of the upstairs corridor: open it, push the wall at the back et voila! a speakeasy with taxidermy & pingpong!

  • Institut du Monde Arabe

    8

    Museum

    i've heard it's wonderful and i can't wait to go. closed mondays.

  • Berthillon

    9

    Ice Cream

    after institut du monde arabe, walk across the bridge to the island. a treat awaits. yeah, the island has its charms as well. view of some church or something.

  • Place des Vosges

    10

    Plaza

    a sublime destination for a picnic, to read a book, to take the air, to ponder the fact that our days, hours and minutes on this planet are very limited. oh.

  • Marché Bastille

    11

    Market

    farmer's market. check for dates. might be sundays only, but i'm not sure. if closed, then Beaucoup, a café on 7 rue Froissart, is a solid alternative for food.

  • Café de l'Industrie

    12

    Bistro

    a more than acceptable lunch spot, but if the marché bastille is open, then i'd grab everything i need there, before running off towards place des vosges.

  • Palais de Tokyo

    13

    Cultural Center

    hard to choose between this and Musée de la Mode et du Costume, not to mention Museé du Quai Branly, but i love this modern art playground that stays open late.

  • Marché de l'Alma

    14

    Market

    farmer's markets are a wonderful way to experience paris as the locals do. you don't need me to tell you that. can't get enough. check for opening hours + days.

  • Les Cocottes

    15

    French

    a touristy part of town, but much goodness here. cute setting, lovely fare. dishes served in jars or cast iron pots (cocottes). no reservations.
