River Dance: The Seine in Summer

When the sun finally deigns to shine brightly in the city, Parisiens collectively burst out of their French doors and hit the cafe terraces. While the usual suspects on famous avenues, traffic-ringed corners and shady rues continue to pull in punters, it’s a bunch of pop-up bars and cafes on the riverfront way down in […]

Paris by the Book

Anne Charlotte de Langhe, editor-in-chief of Figarscope, Le Figaro’s weekly must-read of what’s going on in the city, knows a thing or 100 about Paris and its charms. Les 100 choses à avoir fait au moins 1 fois dans sa vie à Paris (100 things to do in Paris at least once in your life), with […]

On a windswept Sunday it feels its size: 14 markets, more than  2500 stalls, and 17 kilometres of alleyways sprawling over seven hectares. I’ve never […]

No Bones About It: M.O.B Paris

Ketchup slathered hot dogs and juicy burgers may not be new to the Paris food scene but these ones are different—they’re totally vego! Not an all-meat patty in sight. Frenchman Cryil Aouizerate created M.O.B (Maimonides of Brooklyn) in New York and after perfecting the resto’s vegan cred there, he’s moved it in to Paris. Given M. Aouizerate’s […]
