Cheese is one of the things I most crave in France. This time out I researched and found a little shop in the Rive Gauche that did not disappoint. Androuet is an amazing place to stop and grab a few varieties of cheese, a bottle of wine and go across the street for fresh baguettes. Then off to Jardin Luxembourg or the Tulleries for a picnic.
Despite the fact Terry Richardson goes on and on about this place, I still think it’s awesome. One of the oldest and most talked about places in Paris, it makes a great bearnaise sauce and the shrimp salad shown below could not have been better.
One of the most overlooked art places in Paris is the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in the St Germain area. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be 19 and going to school here. Makes me want to go back and do it all over again.
My 4 year old raves about this place and we go almost every day we are in Paris. Two years ago Deyrolle burned almost to the ground but they have recovered nicely. Just remember, no pictures!
7L is Karl Lagerfeld’s book store on Rue de Lille. Full of art and photography books it also has a huge interior design and fashion section. As usual I started in photography but drifted to the interior design and architecture section where I did all my damage.
