The New Paris by Lindsey Tramuta
Ah, Paris: the city where we all dream of living, but never quite feel at home when we visit. Should we only eat in traditional (read: touristy) brasseries in Saint Germain? And what about all the rules? Can we really not drink flat whites, eat non-French food and wear colours other than black or navy? Luckily for any would-be Parisians out there, help is at hand with The New Paris, a book that explores the complexity and richness of contemporary Paris, debunking the tired clichés and celebrating the exciting diversity of the city. In the past few years, a flood of new ideas and creative locals has infused a once static, traditional city with a new open-minded sensibility and energy—which means the once strict Parisian rulebook is becoming increasingly obsolete.
