Where Paris - - My Paris -

If one of our read­ers is only in Paris for 24 hours what one thing would you rec­om­mend they do? Be­gin with break­fast at Claus Paris or at An­gelina’s. Visit the Lou­vre mu­seum prefer­ably with a pri­vate guide be­fore en­joy­ing lunch at Les Jalles or at the Bistrot de Paris lo­cated near the Or­say mu­seum and then take in the Im­pres­sion­ist paint­ings of the Or­say mu­seum. Have a cock­tail at La Pre­scrip­tion bar be­fore hav­ing din­ner at L’Ate­lier de Joël Robu­chon Saint-Ger­main, or have a drink at the bar of the Plaza Athénée be­fore en­joy­ing an ex­cep­tional meal at chef Alain Du­casse’s res­tau­rant at the ho­tel.

For our read­ers who are look­ing for a tra­di­tional Parisian bistro serv­ing au­then­tic French fare, where would you book them a ta­ble? Coq Rico, for its Bresse poul­try or its ma­grets, Train Bleu, Neva or Jules Verne for its view.

Paris is well-known for its mag­nif­i­cent mon­u­ments, from where would you

sug­gest our read­ers get the best view of the city? The top of the butte Mont­martre is the place to be for a breath-tak­ing view of Paris and this area is so quintessen­tially Paris and charm­ing.

It’s not al­ways easy for our read­ers to find some­where fun to head to at 2am, where would you rec­om­mend they party till dawn? The City of Light and the night world join to­gether at L’Arc, the Baron, VIP Room, Si­len­cio, and Raspou­tine.

As the fash­ion cap­i­tal, which ar­eas do you think show­case the best fash­ions? Paris is the cap­i­tal of fash­ion and the ar­eas of Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Rue Saint-Honoré and Av­enue Mon­taigne are its main sym­bols, but you should not for­get to stroll to­wards the de­part­ment stores, Ga­leries Lafayette and Prin­temps on Boule­vard Hauss­mann, close to the Opera.

For a cou­ple in love where would you rec­om­mend they go for a ro­man­tic din­ner? For a ro­man­tic lo­ca­tion, I sug­gest the Mai­son Blanche on the rooftop of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées or a din­ner cruise on the River Seine with the Yachts de Paris.

Where is one of the ar­eas in Paris that is ideal for a leisurely stroll? There is a promenade lo­cated be­tween the Bastille and the Bois de Vin­cennes called la Coulée Verte and the ar­ti­sans and cre­ators lo­cated at the bot­tom of it will help you to dis­cover lesser-known crafts.
