Nanashi

Nanashi

Paris, France

We are in the Haut Marais, it’s breakfast time and we walk along a narrow street toward one of our favourite cafés (Café Pinson). We get to a corner shop with a turquoise façade; stop at the smell, fresh and aromatic, of what seems rice with oriental herbs (lemongrass, jasmine, perhaps sesame). We have a look through the window and discover people carefully preparing delicious Parisian bento. No matter where the day will take us, we will come back here for lunch later today and then again and again…

Kunitoraya

Kunitoraya

Paris, France

A few blocks away from the Louvre the inebriating smell of Asian food reaches you and takes you to the little Parisian Tokyo on Rue Saint-Anne. Many of these restaurants offer quick and tasty meals. Stop at 2, Rue Villedo if you are looking for the perfect spot for a relaxed lunch with someone special. The room is long and narrow, the antique clock hanging on the wall, the wood panels and the mirrors remind of an elegant restaurant carriage on a train from the start of the century. Try the delicate salmon onigiri: black seaweed, white rice and pink fish presented with all the elegance and attention to details that are so typical of Japanese culture. Or order a hot pot of traditional Japanese spaghetti stretched by hand. This is the temple of udon. Yet, every single dish is a delight, including the peach sorbet.

CAFé PINSON

CAFé PINSON

Paris, France

For us, breakfast is a daily ritual. Whether you have it in the comfort of your home or choose to go out, this is a meal that deserves to be enjoyed. For a special breakfast, head to Café Pinson and order homemade pistachio madeleine, accompanied by a fruit smoothie or a tall glass of almond milk. This is the temple of detox: super food (kale, spirulin, sprouts), raw food (raw cacao), organic food and homemade food. The decor is the same that you would find in a contemporary bar in Copenhagen with wifi, comfortable sofas and trendy music. Sit back and relax.

Hôtel Amour

Hôtel Amour

Paris, France

We thought Amour was a registered trademark owned by the city of Paris. Instead, a hotel got to buy it. You can relax in the back garden, enjoying a cup of tea and losing track of time. The waitresses are Cupido’s messengers as they arrange salted butter in tiny porcelain’s portions. Ruby-red tones are everywhere without ever being excessive. The bar and restaurant are open to external customers and get crowded after sunset and at the weekends. With 20 eccentric rooms, Hotel Amour is located just south of Pigalle, in the 9th arrondissement.

Frenchie

Frenchie

Paris, France

That’s the nickname they gave him a few years ago in Jamie Oliver’s kitchen. Greg Marchand is a young brilliant and talented chef. Having cooked in kitchens all around the world, he has now open a mini bistrot on a side street in the 2nd arrondissement where he expresses his culinary identity, half French, half international, just like him.

Rose Bakery

Rose Bakery

Paris, France

This tiny bakery in the Marais is the sanctuary of organic traditional Anglo-French recipes. Perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack or a light lunch; to stay or to go. You will also find it on the top floor of Dover Street Market in London.

Merci

Merci

Paris, France

Right next to the amazing concept store Merci, there’s a cafè inspired to the French cinema of the 50s that serves drinks, light meals (salad with green lentils, bread and tomatoes, Parma ham and rocket) and yummy desserts (fruit crumble, cheese cake).
