L’Instant : Café, Restaurant, Épicerie

I’m sitting in this new little neighborhood restaurant, grocer, café, called l’Instant. I’m enjoying a rare free moment. And no lie, « One Momemt in Time, by Whitney Houston is playing on their radio. You can’t make this up! So this lovely little spot is one of several sprouting up lately around my corner of the Batignolles : Pont Cardinet. It… Read more →

Bistrot Gabrielle, Paris 17.

Article by Melissa Ladd In my never ending search for the perfect Paris café, I have come accross a corner on rue Jouffroy d’Abbans and avenue Villiers that has the most wonderful exposition to the afternoon and evening sun.

We wanted to have a girls’ dinner out and wanted something that… Read more →

Before Winter’s End…

Before Winter’s end, I thought I should perhaps share with you this charming and cozy spot that Chéri and I had drinks at a few weeks ago. The Westin hotel has a bar that I like to go to in the winter, but they added a Winter garden this year. In their atrium that is open to the sky they… Read more →

Ringing in 2014

Chéri and I had a fun intimate party for New Years Eve, at our place with Lisa of Ella Coquine with her chéri and our good friend Sophie. It was nice to just have a small group of good people gathered together to laugh, drink some bubbly, eat decadent delights and be silly until well past the pumpkin hour. I… Read more →
