Over the weekend I had the opportunity to check out Ruinart’s new second skin packaging at their La Maison 1729 pop up. Ruinart is holding a series of tastings, discussions, brunches, and personalization workshops at La Maison 1729 in advance of the official second skin launch on October 15th. In true Ruinart fashion, it was a perfect event.
With the arrival of cooler temperatures in Paris I have to admit I’ve been daydreaming a bit about fall and winter menu changes and some of my favorite dishes. I thought it would be the perfect time to share my top five classic French restaurants in Paris (it’s hard for me to limit my picks, I could easily make a list of 50). The restaurants within all hit the marks for excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
I wandered into Mon Square completely by (happy) accident after visiting the Musée de l’Orangerie. I’d wanted to try it out ever since I saw photos of it in November. It’s one of those places where you think it’s not possible for it to be that beautiful in real life. It exceeded all expectations.
Today is the official reopening of bars and restaurants all across France. It’s a day most people have been waiting three months for. It’s also a major step in getting back to normal, regular life (although I must admit, last week in Paris felt pretty close to normal).
It’s pretty bizarre to think that we’ve been in Normandy since March and now it’s May. It’s exciting though, because if things go as anticipated we’ll be able to go back to Paris on May 11th. I don’t know what the plan is beyond that, but at a minimum it’ll be good to be home. Until then we’ll continue to make the most out of our time in Normandy. Keeping with the spirit of this new month, this week’s Five Friday Finds from France are all happy and exciting. Or at least I think so!
