Thanksgiving in Paris? Oui!

Salut friends and colleagues! How were your holidays? One of my goals in the new year is to continue documenting my travel experiences for posterity and connection. I hope you enjoy the read below on our Thanksgiving ‘22 trip to Paris. It’s filled with recommendations as well! Feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to share more and connect over travel and, of course, your real estate needs. 



We had the pleasure of staying in Le Burgundy Paris located in the 1st arrondissement. This très chic spot is walking distance from Place de La Madeleine and the Louvre. We thoroughly enjoyed the boutique style of the accommodations and being near the Tuileries garden, posh boutiques, and international fashion chains. 

 

I highly recommend paying a visit to the Musée national Picasso-Paris in the 3rd Arrondissement. This stunning 17th century building houses 5,000 pieces from Picasso’s own collection and archive. While one might not typically think of grabbing sushi while in Paris, Bloom sushi in the 17th was a delightful experience with its yummy vegan menu. Another spot worth noting: Qui Plume La Lune in the 11th for a romantic dinner over Michelin fare. One of the walls cleverly quotes WIlliam Faulker, “We ran out into the moonlight and toward the kitchen.”

 A trip to the city of lights wouldn’t be complete without a little shopping…For that we headed to Van Cleef & Arpels in Place Vendôme. Combining fashion and history, we visited Museum Schiaparelli at Art Décoratifs, an exhibition in honor of Elsa Schiaparelli, the esteemed Italian fashion designer behind bold designs worn by royalty, socialites and top models. Also the brilliant mind behind “Schiaparelli pink” or “Shocking Pink,” a bright shade synonymous with the designer. La Galerie Dior in the 8th marked the last stop along the fashion tour. It is a must-see for any fashion patron, with its display of iconic dresses and accessories that embody the history and spirit of Parisian Haute Couture. 


 

Concluding the trip was a lovely dinner at LES RÉSISTANTS in the 2nd, whose menu and culture is founded on the idea that taste and traceability should be the backbone of all food. Owner Florent Piard’s concise menu changes daily with respect to market availability and “good food that respects natural cycles.” The prices here are never outlandish and the quality is always amazing. Definitely worth a trip! 

It was nice to pause, connect with family, and refresh ahead of the busy real estate season ahead. As always, if you need travel recommendations or real estate expertise, do not hesitate to reach out. Let’s grab a coffee and chat. 

Cheers,
