The kitchen talent at this new wine bar comes from Spring and Le Verre Volé, and the small plates feel like a hybrid between the two. They range from the standard rillettes, saucisse, and now-obligatory burrata to more light and creative fare, based on great products from the likes of Terroirs d’Avenir and Joël Thiébault. The vibe is relaxed, the prices are right, and the wines, as if you had to ask, are natural. Open until 2 a.m. most nights.

If you are a lover of old and rare books, you need to bring a visit to the shop of Michel Bouvier. It’s only open  in the afternoon from 14h till 19 h or by appointment. It’s seems a bit confidential or reservated for the happy few, but the owner is a very kind person. He says old and rare books are also a but of luxury and so is a nice library.

15 years ago we were fond of the brothers Conticini. My son’s best desert ever was a little fried chocolat ball with dripping chocolate inside.

Now one of the brothers Conticini has his own tea room with great patries. What to think of …a dream come true strawberry pie.

Sweet dough, crushed almond butter, a touch of rhubarb, vanilla cream and many ciflorette strawberries.
In addition, a little strawberry juice to pour on the pie to titillate those taste buds.

One of Paris’s smallest, yet most charming, public squares. All around, you can find many prestigious stores of design (Flamand), materials , decorations and antiques.

Many artists have painted this romantic place and you can visit the intimate Musée Delacroix. This is the house where the artist lived and worked from 1857 till his death. The museum is a heaven of silence. You can admire some of his watercolor paintings and some selfportraits, befor heading to the nearby church of St. Sulpice where you painted some murals.
