Paris Day 3:


Oh hi…we stumbled upon this down an alley in Marais.


The street artist signed it for me.


Colette got one of these. If only they had a matching larger size for me.


Packaging just seems cooler in Paris.


A pair had to be mine.


The most gorgeous flowers were found when you entered and left our hotel.


The mandatory cocktail before dinner drink(s).


Best meal of the trip was here at Spring.

And so it goes, the final full day of our extra long weekend in Paris.  We woke up late and took croissants and baguettes to go as we strolled through the gardens and walked to St. Germain.  The wide open cobblestone streets were not lost on us, as we lived in Tribeca for many years.  To be able to walk all day without throngs of people, and sit outside for lunch on open sidewalks is very Parisian (I could people watch all day).  We then made our way to Marais where we popped into the cutest boutiques and bought things that we could only find in Paris.  One of my most treasured souvenirs I went home with is the piece of street art shown above.  Perhaps he’s the next Mr. Brainwash?

Our favorite dinner by far which checked off the ambiance, decor and food categories was at Spring.  I tried everything (we had no idea what the chef was bringing us for each small course), the winner being the sole in a morel mushroom sauce.  I’m still salivating over the thought of this.  Owner David Rose recently opened Le Coucou, bringing his French cuisine to NYC (it’s located in 11 Howard).  Next stop in the states!
