At the weekend when I have more spare time, I stop for a relaxed brunch. Etienne Marcel is full of interesting places to eat and my favourite for brunch is Restaurant Marcel, which serves eggs, pancakes and fresh fruit juices (and you can take your brunch out to chill at home if you prefer!).
Rue Montorgueil is the perfect street to do your general grocery shopping: it’s full of greengrocers, bakeries, flower shops, butchers and chocolate shops. You can find pretty much anything you need on this street. Personally I have a total crush on Stohrer, which is the oldest pastry shop in Paris and the birthplace of Baba au Rhum!
The neighbourhood of Etienne Marcel is full of typical and very charming Parisian walkways and arcades. Amongst the lovely shops you’ll find The Passage du Grand Cerf, which houses Glasscove Boutique, a Bench stockist! Just before going through this arcade it joins a street called rue Tiquetonne where there is a stunning vertical garden wall which is totally inspiring.
I have a passion for Asian food, especially when it’s fused with a European twist. The restaurant Rice & Fish does this very well. They have 2 locations on rue Greneta, one at the 16th and the other one at 22nd. The first location serves delicious rice bowls with fried chicken or bentos, and the other one serves sushi and incredible sashimi!
Next to Le Centre Pompidou, there is small garden that I love because it’s a secret… The Anne Frank Garden. If you have trouble finding it keep looking as, its entrance is hidden at the end of a dead-end street – it’s a small paradise amongst a sea of buildings, and a perfect quiet spot.
