5 great restaurants open in August in Paris

August is a month off in Paris, many restaurants are closed and everybody is in vacations. This is a true shame for such a touristy city. But the good news is that ...

Salvatore Rotiroti, the real king of pizza in Paris

Salvatore Rotiroti came all the way from his native Calabria to Paris to teach us, the French people, what is a proper pizza. Don’t think twice if you’re craving for a ...

The Bowery Hotel: vintage though timeless interior design

The reason why the Bowery Hotel is one of the most iconic places to stay in New-York. It’s not part of a luxurious chain of hotels, and there’s no superstar designer ...


Vinegar Hill House pancake, here is the beast

Vinegar Hill is one of the most hip neighborhoods of Downtown Brooklyn. It’s less busy and touristy than Dumbo, and the atmosphere is really charming, thanks to the cobble streets and the colorful townhouses.  We stopped by Vinegar Hill House for brunch last weekend, and it turned out to be a place where (real) locals get their daily [...]

Go get dessert next time: we tried Shake Shack chocolate Concrete

We all know how great shake shack burgers are. No need to dwell for hours on the juicy patty, the golden bun and the special shack sauce. Remember what happened last time you had one? You didn’t have room for dessert, right? Don’t make the same mistake next time and have a shot at Shake [...]


Taverna Kyclades, the best chicken kebab in New York

Chicken kebab is definitely an all time favorite summer food. Our go-to kebab joint in New York is Taverna Kyckades, where the chicken kebab is simply out of this world. This Greek eatery cooks the chicken to perfection, the combination of tender meat in the inside with the grilled skin is always a hit. The only downside? You’ll probably [...]


Where to have a Cuban Sandwich in Soho?

You must have heard about the Cuban sandwich. I love this delicioux combo of thin pork slices, ham and cheese with pickles. The toasted panini-like bread adds a lot of texture. It’s really hard to find any in France, people love their traditional jambon-beurre. So where is the best spot to find a Cuban sandwich [...]


La Palmeraie, a sumptuous meal in a georgous setting

Gigaro is only a few minutes by car from St-Tropez and the ride is entirely worth it if you stop at La Palmeraie. We had dinner there a few months ago, under the palm trees, overlooking the beautiful provençal landscape. PROVENCAL CUISINE WITH A TWIST Things got quickly serious with the celeriac in remoulade, cherry tomatoes and olives. Celeriac [...]


Morocco meets pop art in a cocktail bar, that’s Andy Wahloo

Walou is a typical Moroccan term referring to something you don’t have the answer to. You’ll fully understand the pun and the reference to Andy Warhol once you get inside, they successfully associated north African style with a hint of modern art and pop. Think comfortable leather bench seat and mosaic style coffee tables. The bartender [...]


La Pinède, a different take on the French Riviera

We all hate the show-off atmosphere at St-Tropez, that’s exactly why we went off the beaten path, in Gigaro. In this charming village, you’ll be find a peaceful hotel overviewing a breathtaking landscape. La Pinède offers more than a private beach, there’s also a pool, a nice bar area and well decorated bedrooms. Don’t be afraid [...]


Brioche Con Gelato, where to find them in New York

Brioche con Gelato, it’s like Marie-Antoinette meeting Da Vinci. An unexpected fusion dessert between France and Italy. We recently fell in love with this generous brioche stuffed with italian style gelato. The idea might seem bizarre but the result is great. At first, you get the crunchiness of the toasted brioche, then you discover a refreshing heart [...]


Barbarac, cheap ice-creams in St-Tropez. True Story

Who could think we could find more than decent ice cream in St-Tropez? If you head to the marina where all the luxurious yachts are parked, you’ll probably notice this gelato spot with a strange name, Barbarac. The price tag was surprisingly cheap considering the location, I almost choked when I was asked to pay €4 when I [...]


MIZNON, street food for riches in Paris

Miznon is the last trendy street food joint in Paris. The chef comes from Tel Aviv, Israel, and mainly does pita and falafels in his new Paris outpost. The decor is very neat, we love this kind of industrial vintage look although there’s a feeling of déja vu. We got a beef bourguignon pita and a [...]


Tea Time’s Kingdom at the PRINCE DE GALLES

Who goes for a tea time in Paris just for the tea? We’re only interested in the pastries and the finger sandwiches. But don’t go for the old school palaces where the tea time is all about ripping off tourists. The Prince de Galles has undergone renovation for a few years and it has finally reopened recently. [...]


The DAILY SYRIEN, better than l’As du Falafel?

Saying that Middle Eastern street food in Paris has always been weak is an understatement. I should use the past tense though, as the Daily Syrien has been a great addition to that food scene in Paris. It’s not that we don’t like l’As du falafel, the most famous falafel joint in Paris but it’s a bit overrated [...]


A night at Michel Guerard’s hotel, is it worth the price?

After a good meal at Michel Guerard flagship restaurant in Eugénie Les Bains, it’s very tempting to have a nap in the Prés d’Eugénie. Is it worth the demential price tag though? Be prepared to pay about €200 a night for a one bedroom apartment. There are several parts in the hotel, we went with the appartments of [...]
