Sometimes, the confined atmoshpere of a Parisian restaurant just won’t make the cut. You wan’t something bigger, with more room to breath, with more comfy seats. With space. And for that, you might have to rush just outside of Paris to the Cité du Cinéma where you can eat at the B.O. restaurant. After walking through a gigantic glass hall, you eventually arrive at a vast open space. I must admit right away that the B.O. has the hottest waitresses I’ve seen in a restaurant in 2013. If that’s not a good enough excuse already, you just have to take a look at the menu below. So many credible and delicious options. I wouldn’t advise you against anything! First class service and quality brasserie twist. That’s all I’m praying for!

As part of their collaboration, Smart and furniture brand BoConcept set up a pop-up installation in Paris a few weeks back. The theme was to design what would be an urban living room in a public open space. The result showcased the limited edition Smart car along with a few pieces of the collection. I wouldn’t mind a rockin’ chair or a sofa and I’m sure most of you digg that crazy CEO seat hereabove.

Hotel Prince de Galles Patio Restaurant Paris

Book a Table

A few months ago, we featured the reopening of Parisian palace Prince de Galles (a Starwood Hotel): an actual haven of peace just nearby noisy and congested Avenue des Champs Elysées. We then had the chance to go and have lunch at the Le Patio restaurant (see the pic above)… You cannot dream of a more peaceful place to have a nice brunch/lunch on a sunny Sunday! The staff always extends a warm welcome and the food is amazing: I particularly remember that amazing sea bream accompanied with some revisited mac&cheese (see below)… A real deliciousness!! I highly recommend you take your girlfriend there for lunch or even for a drink (great choice of wines by glass)…

Blueberry Restaurant Paris Maki choice

Hidden in the middle of Saint-Germain district, Blueberry Restaurant is the typical Californian fusion food place where you can get imaginative makis you won’t get anywhere here. In these times of heat wave in Paris, Blueberry’s makis with fresh seafood products, sumptuous truffles and tasty citrus fruits will transcend you. Try the Iroquois (marinated beef, coriander, cucumber, sesame and piment d’espelette) or be more daring and order some exquisite Rackham le Rouge (tempura prawn, soy marinated tuna, truffle, cucumber, spicy mayonnaise, flying fish roe and chive)! To finish, we highly recommend the fresh Frisco (some sea bream (daurade) ceviche with cherry tomatoes and  sweet pepper into a maki)… Just a blast on your palate! It actually reminds me of a place we visited in Los Angeles during our road trip in the US (Yu N Mi). Check out all our pics after the break!

A wonderful terrasse with view on the Eiffel Tower, a high-ceiling Art Deco dinning room designed by Joseph Dirand (who happens to be the same dude who designed the Chloé store rue Saint-Honoré), black marble, green suede chairs. Everything’s splendid. I haven’t tried Monsieur Bleu yet but I feel like you go there to see and be seen rather than for the food itself. Or maybe I’m mistaken… It’s simply refreshing to see that the Palais de Tokyo has found a new life. Let’s hope this brasserie chic doesn’t disappoint us when we go for a check anytime soon.

After two years of heavy face-lifting, the Parisian hotel Prince de Galles has now re-opened. We were invited to check for ourselves how magnifiscent, luxurious and enchanting the hotel has become again. We’ve seen many hotels already, tried many (many) hotel bars and patios and terrasses, but I can tell you 100% honestly that I’ve yet to find a place that makes a greater impression than the Prince de Galles. The monumental lobby entrance, the quiet and cosy bar, the amazing patio are all of exquisite taste and designed with the most meticulous attention to detail. For the re-opening, we were handed Lomo cameras and were given all access so as to give you a full report. Check out all our photos after the break and make sure you go and visit the place before everyone else!

Carlsberg invited us a few days ago to have us discover L’Atelier des Artistes near République in Paris. The place is a restaurant, lounge, bar and even has a screening room and a private “Danish suite”. L’atelier des Artistes is a complex yet successful combination of modern art, gastronomy and nordic inspiration. The venue is actually pretty big: the restaurant on the ground floor, which we have yet to try, looks very promising. Downstairs, we loved all the design furniture and whole atmosphere of the bar. I invite you to go check it out by yourself!
