I attempt to do this more often, to share my sweet spots around the world and make your trip more fun and less typical touristic (even though some of the klichés you actually have to do). Mostly my ideas just ends up being as saved ‘unposted’ blog notes… But not today! Lately there have been many new restaurants popping up in Paris and I thought we have look at my three favorites at the moment.
OBER MAMMA 107 Boulevard Richard Lenoir or 133 Rue du Fb St Antoine, 75011 Paris
There are two of them, one in Oberkampf and one in Bastille, but still both in the 11th arrondissement. One of the few places you actually can’t make a reservation so if you’re looking to get seated normal time you need to be there 15 minutes before they open at 6pm as there will be a line. Ones inside they’ll take your name and you wait in the bar area where free unlimited cheese and ham platter is served until you get your table. Choose from yummy Italian pre-drinks and when they open up the kitchen by 7pm, get some burrata cheese and meatballs.
BUVETTE 28 Rue Henry Monnier, 75009 Paris
If you been to West Village the last year you may have already came across this offshoot restaurant before, as it’s the older brother. Luckily, there’s one now in the 9th arrondissement on the same block as Hôtel Amour. Same thing here small, cozy and no reservations. Sharing is caring, right? Well, you got to be fast when dining here, as they’re so delicious and they seem to disappear as soon as you turn around. Get Spanish and French small dishes to share. And don’t forget the buttery high calorie bomb of chocolate in the end.
LA MARÉE JEANNE 3 Rue Mandar, 75002 Paris
New fantastic seafood restaurant in the 2nd arrondissement. You can book a table if you like but I highly suggest you try the bar. Not only does it feel more casual and genuine but you can see the kitchen too. I don’t know why but I just love that. Trying to remember what I did have last time… I know to go for three plates and remembering it being so good!

Saturday was spent shopping and culturally engaging. Then a quick stop at the Pinacothèque to see Karl Lagerfeld’s photography exhibition, lighten up my weekend. A journey through his life and as he so nicely puts it:
“J’ai le bonheur de pouvoir consacrer ma vie à ce qui m’intéresse le plus : la photographie, la mode et les livres, et ce dans les meilleurs et plus parfaites conditions. Je suis très chanceux.”

Follow Louis Vuitton’s journey from 1854 until today at the Grand Palais’ exhibition Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton. From the first trunk, bag, logo until today’s iconic fashion house. A fenomenal work under the direction of Olivier Saillard and the scenographine as well as creative direction by Robert Carsen.

Say hello to my new Hermès micro Kelly bracelet in black leather. My sweet boyfriend gave it to me for Christmas and I absolutely adore it. What makes it so great for me is that it’s “petite” and works to my casual outfit.

To celebrate the new year, Olivia and Emmanuel hosted an awesome spontaneous dinner party in their lovely new apartment over at the 17th arrondissement. We ate, we drank, we danced and we laughed, do I need to say more? I hope you had a fantastic NYE too and that you’re not too worried about not keeping your new year’s resolutions (mine to come here soon at the blog). Now some snapshots from the beginning of our evening before we continued the night out at Silencio…
