    In the footsteps of our concierge…

    Let me propose you two charming and little-known places to have a drink in Paris after Première Vision, either before or after dinner. 

    Le Pantruche

    3, rue Victor Massé – 75009 Paris, Tel : 01 48 78 55 60

    A genuine Pigalle bistro, right out of a French gangster film from the ’60s. A big counter and Gilles Grangier-style furniture. Dinner menu: 36 €.

    Autour d’un verre

    21, rue de Trévise – 75009 Paris, Tel : 01 48 24 43 74

    A former hair salon redesigned as a restaurant. Decor includes vintage school chairs and a big mirror on the wall. Open kitchen. One of the best “oeufs mayonnaise” in Paris. Robust organic wines. Around 40 € per person.

    La Crèmerie

    9, rue des quatre vents – 75006 Paris, Tel : 01 43 54 99 30

    Time has come to a stop in this small, almost private eatery in the 6th arrondissement. The extraordinary, barely smoked organic salmon alone is worth the trip. High-quality yet simple fare.

    Le bon Saint Pourcain

    10, rue Servandoni – 75006 Paris, Tel : 01 42 01 78 24

    Hidden behind the Place Saint Sulpice, on an almost pedestrian street, with a nicely tidy dining room, red benches, white tablecloths, and a mosaic floor. The Chef has worked at major Paris dining establishments, and proposes carefully prepared bistro cuisine.

    Le Sybaris

    86, rue des archives – 75003 Paris, Tel : 06 47 87 96 98

    A former chef at Ducasse offers up a colourful cuisine in a pared-down decor, with brushed cement walls. A narrowly curated but very well executed menu.

    Le Servan

    32, rue Saint Maur – 75011 Paris, Tel : 01 55 28 51 82

    Two sisters run this bistro, mostly for travellers. Their specialties are soft-boiled eggs and roasted chicken served with real, crunchy green peas. Very nice wine cellar and easy on the wallet price: 25 € dinner menu.

    Papillon

    8, rue Meissonier – 75017 Paris, Tel : 01 56 79 81 88

    The surprise of the new year. A young 32-year-old chef, formerly at the Plaza Athénée (Alain Ducasse), serves up inspired cooking, but knows how to keep it simple in uproariously sound creations. An upscale bistro without any false notes. Price: 50-70 € per person.

    Our favourite: Ellsworth
    ellsworth-parisEllsworth

    34, rue de Richelieu – 75001 Paris, Tel : 01 42 60 59 66

    A sit-down restaurant in Paris with a “Seattle street food” feel. A long corridor bursting with ambiance, a cuisine bathed in light freshness and a dash of cleverness. The rice pudding alone is worth the trip. You won’t feel stuffed even at the end of a full meal.

    Out of Canvas, an exhibition dedicated to Joachim Romain at the Galerie Art & Craft

    322107-out-of-canvas-l-exposition-de-joachim-romain-a-la-galerie-art-craft-2

    Based in Saint-Denis on the outskirts of Paris, Joachim Romain, born in 1973, addresses the concepts of temporality, urban environment and mass consumption. Following in the line of New Realism and Pop Art, he transforms the media landscape in which we are conditioned. He makes us aware of the role played by the constant escalation of information in our daily lives, letting emerge an avenging critique of our consumer society.
