The fine September days lead me to thoughts of two charming and little-known places to have a drink in Paris after Première Vision, either before or after dinner.
The Holiday Inn hotel
Paris Notre Dame, 4 rue Danton,
Featuring a discreet roof top terrace with a panoramic view of the Latin Quarter and Notre Dame. On the menu: cold ham and cheese platters, cocktails and champagne.
Le Terrasse hôtel
12 rue Joseph de Mestre.
In Montmartre, near Abbesses. The Terrasse Hotel has been fully renovated. The hotel truly lives up to its name with an absolutely breath-taking view, featuring a bar/eatery on the rooftop. You can have a drink or dinner.
La Petite Cour
8 rue Mabillon – Paris 75006.
One of the most charming terraces in Paris. The location is idyllic, and the cuisine neo-classic.
5 rue Paul Louis Courier – 75007 Paris.
The team from the much-touted “Cinq Mars” bistro has opened a new take on a classic pizzeria, skilfully and unostentatiously. Wood-fired pizzas.
Le Garde temps restaurant
19 bis rue Pierre Fontaine – 75009 Paris
An arty decor and convivial atmosphere. Surprisingly good bistro-style fare. .
Canard et champagne
57 Passage des panoramas – 75002 Paris.
Tapas bar in a former chocolate factory dating back to 1818. Wine finds from small producers, delicious tapas and desserts.
36 rue des Boulangers – 75005 Paris.
A pocket-sized restaurant where the tables play footsie. The team here is a young couple – she’s Japanese and makes the desserts, he’s the chef and formerly worked at Astrans. A fine marriage of the two, 45 € all inclusive.
119 avenue Parmentier – 75011 Paris.
A well-done bistro just the way we like it, with a touch of pared down elegance. Wonderful gourmet food compositions. The cream of broccoli made with a Bleu d’Auvergne cheese is by itself worth the trip. A kitchen with a Bearnaise bent.
1, rue des Pyramides – 75002 Paris At Sébastien Gaudard, for either a sweet or savoury treat, but I encourage you to try the croque-monsieur.
14, rue Léopold Bellan – 75002 Paris, Tel : 01 40 26 87 33 Cured meats and hams, good wines and cheeses. A fine selection of natural and bio-dynamic wines.

Bridging botanic art and design
The Bulk Garden/Le Jardin en stock, otherwise described as a garden in waiting, proposes stored trees forming a valley that is an invitation to travel. The installation is a nod to the earliest use of the docks, formerly used for transit, storage and passageway. This vegetal installation is a micro-forest of Ginkgo Biloba, also known as the Maidenhair tree. It was the only tree to have survived Hiroshima, and symbolises nature in danger, exploited but always strong and able to adapt.
from 6 July 2016 to 10 October 2016
Musée Guimet Place d’Iéna 75116 Paris 16
Mirror of Desire, the new exhibit at the Musée Guimet, unveils a portion of the Japanese prints in the collections of the museum and the Réunion des Musées Nationaux in a visual experience in the second-floor rotunda.

Fondation Louis Vuitton
8 Avenue du Mahatma Gandhi
The Vuitton Foundation welcomes artist Daniel Buren in a monumental installation creating a dialog with the slender architecture of Frank Gehry. Called the “Observatory of Light”, the work is of a scale and ambition that’s very much worth a look!
