1. Le Mini Palais
Best Afternoon Hangout
Warm weather, artisanal cocktails and a spectacular view of the famous deck arch bridge, Pont Alexandre III, makes the architecturally significant terrace at the Mini Palais (inside the Grand Palais) one of the best summer hangouts in Paris. Michelin-three star chef Eric Frechon, with his partner, Executive Chef Stéphane d’Aboville, created a chic meeting spot for a romantic rendezvous or giggle session with great friends. My plan of attack is to eat a light lunch and then split a “Giant rum Baba” (amusing bouquet of ice cream, candies, whipped cream and chocolate) for dessert. Believe me, the extra calories are totally worth the indulgence. Another perk is that they are open until 2:00am, making it a perfect destination for late night snacks.
