THIS WEEKEND IN: PARIS
The newly-revamped Sonia Rykiel boutique and a delicious new restaurant top our list of places to see in Paris this weekend.
In the Left Bank neighborhood where the streets are paved with literary history, this flagship boutique has undergone a novel remake. Some 50,000 books now line the store’s walls and pillars, mixing fashion and fabulous fiction.
Restaurant Le Gabriel
Chef Jérôme Banctel’s inventive dishes are classically French, with exotic touches – nibble on some candied kombu here, bite into a sliver of tomato tempura there. Against a chic backdrop, the experience is a gastronomic delight.
