Spend 24h following in the footsteps of Marine Fourié, PR manager at PR Consulting Paris, and discover the 10th district of Paris which is very much like her: cool and fun!
The secret weapon to succeed on this challenge is… a good bike!
8:00 am: If it rains, or you have zero motivation = yoga at home. If everything goes well, I go for a 45 minute swim at La Piscine Parmentier.
9:00 am: Head out to La Fontaine, the new café by Thomas Lehoux, the boss of the Brûlerie Belleville, to have my first coffee of the day. Its my favorite venue, and I might end up back here the same evening for a glass of wine, if time permits.
9:30 am: Bob’s Juice Bar, avocado/cream cheese bagel and filtered juice. I always meet up with my friend Laura there and do a mini debrief in the morning to start the day off right.
11:00 am: I go by Philippe Le Libraire (we can can find some small treasures!) then to Thanks God I’m A Vip (which is like the cave of Ali Baba – and I can spend hours there)
1:30 pm: I go to Gallina, a totally new, totally cool bar/restaurant that just opened and is run by my friends. If you love good chicken, this is the place to go: simple, effective, and just so good! Gallina becomes a neighborhood bar at night where one often runs into friends who live in the area.
3:00 pm: I head over to the Coopérative Latte Cisterino. I want to buy EVERYTHING there. EVERYTHING. Honestly!
4:00 pm: A litte trip down to Negatif +, to retrieve/deposit or buy film.
5:00 pm: After a walk along the Canal St. Martin , I stop by Du Pain et Des Idées to try out their escargot choco-pistachio – definitely worth it!
6:00 pm: I head over to Tom des Fleurs (THE best florist in Paris), where I know I’ll always leave with a perfect little bouquet.
7:30 pm: Time for a little drink at the Verre Volé (or Verre Volé sur mer), where I eat an appetizer (anything seafood with shells), and enjoy their incredible wine selection.
9:00 pm: Dinner Part 1 at Les Vinaigriers
10:30 pm: Dinner Part 2 and dessert at Vivant – this place never disappoints, it is my cantine for the night! Pierre Touitou is not just a chef, he’s a magician. The dessert here is to die for!
And the day will most certainly finish up at La Mano … where we can dance the night away.
