Hotel Marignan: Limon Bar and Rooftop Terrace

It was a hot midsummer evening and we were headed to Hotel Marignan to investigate their Limon bar that reopened about a year prior (2017)… At first glance, I thought it would be just some five star hotel bar with leopard print pillows trying to impress me with mediocre cocktails….BOY was I in for a surprise!

Treize Au Jardin

Or as I like to call it, The New Treize! Laurel and Kajsa, the dynamic duo of 13 A Baker’s Dozen, have done it again : created another magical address. This is the rebirth of a true labor of love. They said goodbye in March (2018) to their darling cozy spot we knew and loved on rue des Saints Pères,… Read more →

Jardin de Luxembourg : Kids Paradise!

We brought Bébé Chéri recently to the Luxembourg Garden for a day of kids fun and frolicking that was absolutely fantastic!

A Parisian Ski Lodge with a View

 Article by Frank Cierpial  Café de L’Homme is one of those cafes in Paris that you cannot miss. I have a rubric on which I rate establishments for dining out. I call it  the “Dining Out Trinity” and it is based on a line from my idol: The great Carrie Bradshaw. She said that in New York, you either looking for… Read more →

Book Boutique for Bébé Chéri in the Batignolles 

I love buy things for Bébé Chéri. Clothes, food gifts,  toys, and I always feel happy when I  have purchased something for him. But especially when I buy him books. The best thing you can do for your child is to teach them the value of reading. Well,  he doesn’t read yet, but I want to instill in him a… Read more →
