Anyone who’s into fashion and art will immediately gravitate towards the stunning Frank Gehry-designed building in the 16th arrondissement. You could spend hours just staring at the building itself, but inside the museum you’ll find both permanent and rotating collections of art that you could easily get lost in.
The Hoxton Hotel group has just opened their first Parisian address, and it comes with quite a bit of buzz. Housed in an 18th-century townhouse, expect a cozy feel with classic Anglo-Saxon comfort food. The inner courtyard and the orangery create the perfect opportunity for a quick breakfast, business lunch, relaxing dinner or a cocktail.
This charming, small plates restaurant is off the beaten path, but well worth a cab ride. An ever-changing menu serves fresh, authentic fare like cèpes a la Grecque, duck leg with herring caviar, and steak tartare. Chef Wim Van Gorp moved up the ranks working for Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Market and cooking for Alain Ducasse before opening the doors to his own spot.
