A must do in Paris.
If the weather obeys and you are in Paris, go have lunch at L´AVENUE on 41 Avenue Montaigne 75008. Sit outside where you are surrounded with impeccable finishing touches, designer boutiques and a great view for people watching. My friend and I did this close to Christmas time while enjoying our hot lemon tea (to detox yesterday’s champagne), a glass of Billecart-Salmon brut rosé (so we don’t get too detoxed) and ate delicious buttery foie gras and fresh berries for dessert. We sat next to chic Parisian young ladies that seemed to be a common theme in this sophisticated atmosphere. They sat quietly eating their escargots watching us in great detail, I suppose we were a bit too loud for their quiet standards as we were laughing out loud and surrendering to the relaxed Parisian way of life. The waitresses were tall and thin wearing leather jackets, short skirts and stylishly layered in all-black designs with a few studs here and there. This fashionable spot clearly attracts a beautiful crowd and has a very mellow chicness to it. The place has an interesting menu that is fresh and modern with a peaceful calm surrounding. A great place to watch Paris stroll by while taking a break from your cultural/ shopping haven!
