Savory Saturday – La Epicerie

If they say heaven is a place on Earth, that this place in heaven is where love comes first, then we are convinced that La Epicerie, adjoined to Le Bon Marche, is that place. Between the wine cave on the basement floor, the bakery, the deli, the jam section, the water selection, and the variety of chocolates from around the world located in Aisle Never Leave (the unofficial name of the aisle given by us), La Epicerie is a gourmet gourmand’s final destination. Stocked full of foods and food good specialities from France and across the world, the sister store of Le Bon Marche is as high end as it gets.

Boat Bar Hopping: The Hottest Bateauxs on the Seine

A picnic on the Seine is a great way to wind down a day, but a rooftop bar on the Seine may be even better. Here are our top three choices for the best boat bars on the Seine (in the Port des Invalides/Quai d’Orsay area) that you must check out this summer before they float away from the 7th arrondissement and your rosé préférée is gone to be replaced by mulled wine. 1) Rosa Bonheur Sur Seine: an offshoot founded by the team behind the Rosa Bonheur situated in the Parc Buttes-Chaumont, this immensely popular floating barge bar is packed to the brims with people. While it seems like the sides of the boat are bursting with action, it’s actually the dancefloor inside that has all the main attractions.
