Eat me like it's hot - at Frenchie Pigalle!
Inspired by his international travels, Chef Gregory Marchand brings to the table spontaneity and a fusion of genres - on the menu of Frenchie Pigalle you will find gougères and labneh with sumac and za’atar, bacon scones, raw red tuna with raspberries topped with cucumber granita, and sweetbread nuggets with raw cream and caviar - just among the few surprising food pairings. For Chef Marchand, Frenchie Pigalle is a "free electron, a globalised, mixed kitchen, a little more sexy-trash." Tucked away in the heart of the Grand Pigalle Hotel, Frenchie Pigalle gives a sober and elegant vibe, with white-tiled walls, ceramic decorative elements and blond-wood tables. Located on 29 rue Victor-Massé, 9th district.
Golden Hour at Laho
Who wouldn't want to spend their summers perched 60m high above the ground, watching an incredible sunset, the city of Paris and its most beautiful monuments? Laho , with its convivial decor of exotic wood floors, lawns and lush vegetation, is touted as one of the hottest new rooftop bars in Paris. Ride your way in a private lift, and come here to chill on the XXL multi-coloured lounge chairs and poufs as well as to indulge in a menu crafted by Chef Julie Basset. Laying a strong emphasis on the use of high-quality produce, Chef Basset explains, “I created this menu like a return to simple things we can share again after weeks on lockdown, beautiful plates with seasonal and quality products.” Share a board of cold meats from Maison Vérot, or opt for a revisited mayo egg dish. As for the cocktails, every one of them is a perfect accompaniment to the sunset view. Located on 5-9 Rue Van Gogh, a few steps from Gare de Lyon - 12th district
A detour to the countryside...not far from Paris!
We've found a little piece of countryside, 15 minutes from Paris! In Pavillon de la Tourelle , the former residence of the Duchess of Mortemart, Les Pieds dans l'Herbe is an open-air paradise. At noon, it's a restaurant by reservation and in the evening, a bar. Participate in a game or two of pétanque and table tennis in the garden. For lunch, the salmon tartare, poke bowls, seabass ceviche and burgers will whet your appetite. In the evening, make way for elaborate tapas and naans, which come in Norwegian, Italian, cheese and Nutella versions as well as a range of classic cheese and deli-meat platters.
