Described as: “A place we moved from a southern French village and transported to Paris”, Cafe Citron is a gastronomical pocket of provincial paradise created by French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus and restaurant group Caviar Kaspia.
Originally hailing from the small town of Mallemort in southern France, here — on the first floor of the Galeries Lafayette on the Champs-Élysées — Jacquemus has designed a curated haven of lemon trees, ceramics, earthenware vases, and raw materials which transports Parisians straight to Provence, and where seasonal product is given pride of place.
Perfect for: A cozy and interesting destination to drop into for a bite before the start of a designer shopping expedition, where you’ll be able to sample a smorgasbord of Mediterranean delicacies from artisans such as the Boulangerie Sain by Anthony Courteille and farmers from the Vergers St Eustache.
What to order: Any patisserie (all desserts are made by Stohrer, the oldest pâtisserie in Paris).
Trading hours: Every day from 10.30 until midnight
Address : 60 avenue des Champs-Élysées - 75008 Paris
They have often made this strange and penetrating dream .... An elegant, charming and cultured gentleman who knew how to make himself available every day and often very late at night… A gentleman who worked, exhibited, cooked, sang and sometimes even danced ...
To step into this iconic restaurant through the Gare de Lyon is to enter a place where time stops; where diners are taken on an incredible gastronomic journey of discovery through the most beautiful regions in France, and where the décor is just as magnificent as the food.
For two nights only — on June 28th and July 19th, 2019 — Cucina Mutualité, the Italian masterpiece of famous Parisian chef Alain Ducasse, will open up its rooftop for the exclusive culinary pop-up event of the season.
This hidden speakeasy – promoted simultaneously as a place for “Café, Cocktails and Pyjamas” – is hands-down one of the most poetic (and unique) bars in Paris, tucked away into a chic nook at the beautiful Place des Vosges — the oldest square in Paris.
