My last four years in Paris have mainly been in the tenth arrondissement and I've fallen in love. Over the last year or two it's started to become gentrified, and as a result some fabulous food options have been popping up.Here are my top tips for this fabulous neighbourhood...

Haute Marais

I have just spent a few weeks in Paris and have discovered that a whole load of new cafes and bars have sprung up in what used to be a bit of a run down area. It’s by the Marie III and rue Dupuis. I spent a delightful day with friends discovering a few places […]

Polidor, Paris (5th)

An ex colleague has recently moved within Paris and is now by Cluny la Sorbonne, in the 5th arrondissement. I am delighted as I don’t know this area very well. I (wrongly) associate the fifth with St Michel, hoards of tourists and fan restaurants, but there is so much more. We tried to go to […]

Only a few of the newspapers are left in that area and they have far more choice of venue so now the Imprimerie hosts a mixed crowd. It’s was one of my favourite […]

A perfect Sunday in Le Marais, Paris

Sunday is my favourite day in Paris. A lazy morning, some kind of ridiculous brunch/lunch menu in the Marais with friends, a wander around stopping at the odd boutique, coffee with more friends, more wandering, maybe another stop for friends and then dinner before going home for a tisane and early night. The Marais is […]
