Sipping on Saturday: The Artful Cocktails of the Art Room

Sipping on Saturday: The Artful Cocktails of the Art Room | Exploring the Paris food scene | Scoop.it

"Not too long ago while searching for a place to have drinks with some of my favorite ladies I stumbled upon The Art Room which opened this year and was given a mention in a fabulous recently started French magazine dedicated to everything Paris, Vivre Paris!


In a small narrow street in Paris' 2nd district is this three level, intimate, chic bar ready to be discovered. The music is electro-pop, the interior is a slick design with cozy nooks here and there. It was surprisingly smaller than I had expected so I was thankful it wasn't packed on the night we chose to go. You do have a bit more room downstairs where there is a second bar for when it gets really busy but if you want to watch the magic happen it is on the main floor.


The concept is simple, Cocktails straight out of the kitchen not the bottle. The cocktails are based on a culinary approach marrying flavors together from fruit to spices rather than use processed mixes of sometimes astonishing color."

North American-style food trucks in Paris? Mais oui

North American-style food trucks in Paris? Mais oui | Exploring the Paris food scene | Scoop.it
Sacre bleu! North American-style food trucks in Paris? Specializing in take-out burgers and drawing crowds of hungry Parisians in the toniest, trendiest parts of the city? C’est impossible.


Yet, Cantine California, operated by American-Canadian Jordan Feilders, who is originally from San Francisco, is among the young entrepreneurs drawing media attention on both sides of the Atlantic for feeding the French street-food from a truck, reports the New York Times.

Let’s qualify this though. Cantine California makes huge concessions to French gastronomic sensibilities. Translation: It isn’t selling greasy French fries. The burgers are made from prime, grass-fed beef and topped with an elegant dab of exotic fromage. Its “Carnitas Tacos” feature pork slow-cooked for seven hours, and the other ingredients are fresh and from special suppliers.

Feast like a King in a Parisian palace | The French Cowboy

Feast like a King in a Parisian palace | The French Cowboy | Exploring the Paris food scene | Scoop.it

"Once I had visited Mama Shelter, another Stark creation by the way, I was back in the saddle and galloping to the Shangri-la Hotel. Yes, I was already a little late for my reservation!

This place is a huge palace. The outside is almost overwhelming when you approach the entrance. It is not my taste in décor, but it is very luxurious! There are three restaurants in the hotel. We went to the gastronomic restaurant (l’Abeille), aka the most expensive…after all the reputation as we learned from Philippe Tailleur (the director of Bread and Roses) is that they give you a day to digest the food and one more day to digest the bill!! Humm, what were we in for?

Well, we all set down in a small and luxurious dining room. The service was a little pompous but very attentive. The food was great and beautifully presented but served warm, not hot. I learned about this technique from the Corporate Chef of Marc Veyrat (3 star Michelin in Annecy). He explained – at one of my most pleasurable dining experiences at the restaurant of Laurent Petit, Le Clos des Sens – that some restaurants are doing such special and difficult plating techniques that it became a trend to serve warm food.

We were served some extra amuse bouches before the appetizer and extras desserts with petits fours and chocolates. I guess you get a little extra with the big bill you pay in a 2 star Michelin restaurant in Paris!!

Le Bazar de l'Hôtel de Ville

Le Bazar de l'Hôtel de Ville | Exploring the Paris food scene | Scoop.it

"Sooner or later, we know, we will end up having lunch at the Cantine in the BHV (Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville). It’s central. It’s inexpensive. The food is good. The view from the big windows is magnificent. And of all the Paris department stores, it’s the most approachable. It’s not as big as Galeries Lafayette, nor as beautiful as Printemps, nor as trendy as Le Bon Marché. But it’s a reliable place to find what you want, from lunch to lightbulbs to luggage to lingerie.


This time, we were entranced by the illustrations on the cafeteria walls. They were pictures of culinary tools, paired with the objects from which they took their names. A mandoline (for slicing) with the musical instrument. A chinois (cone-shaped sieve) and a Chinese hat. A diable (a small casserole dish) and a picture of the devil. An araignée (skimmer) and a spiderweb. About a dozen pairs in all."

lostpastremembered: Dinner of the Three Emperors, Berry-Caramel ... | Exploring the Paris food scene | Scoop.it
On June 7, 1867,  a dinner was held at Café Anglais in Paris that came to be known as the "Dinner of the Century".  It was called the Dîner des Trois Empereurs  (Dinner of the Three Emperors). Those emperors were:  Tsar Alexander II  (1818-1881), his son Alexander, the Tsarevitch
(1845-94), Kaiser Wilhelm I  (1797-1888), and the powerful, if not royal, Otto von Bismark (1815-1898).

The great men had come to Paris for the Exposition Universelle –– a world’s fair put on by Napoleon III  that was meant to impress (he was inspired by England’s Crystal Palace Exhibition in 1851). It showcased exotic cultures (the Japanese exhibit had an enormous influence on artists of the day, especially van Gogh), and new achievements in science and industry and of course fashion and food of the 2nd Empire of France.

A foodie's tour of the forgotten corners of Paris

A foodie's tour of the forgotten corners of Paris | Exploring the Paris food scene | Scoop.it

"Out-of-the-way pleasures are what Jennifer McLagan likes best.

Most people go where most people have already gone. But the critically acclaimed food writer who divides her year between Toronto and Paris has a powerful longing to see the world her own way.

The titles of her single-minded culinary trilogy describe this elusive curiosity exactly: Bones, Fat and now Odd Bits, which is subtitled How to Cook the Rest of the Animal and extends the boundaries of gastronomic delight to tripe and trotters, cheeks and chitterlings, boudin and brains.

Her Paris, likewise, is a rest-of-the-animal kind of experience. From her apartment in the little-frequented 14th arrondissement, just inside Paris’s encircling ring road (the périphérique), she explores the odd bits of the City of Light thathave managed to stay clear of the spotlight.

“It’s still very French, very calm and neighbourhoody,” she says in the appreciative tones of a devotee who has been critically assessing Paris for more than three decades. “The bakers and the butchers are still here.

Marché Mouton-Duvernet

This tiny and typical Parisian market on the town-hall square has everything for the discerning omnivore. Jennifer McLagan’s favourite stops include the fishmonger who cooks whole crab, shucks scallops and stocks a salad-like seaweed called oreilles de cochon; the apple and pear vendor who also sells fresh juice; a mushroom seller specializing in chanterelles and pleurottes; and a greengrocer whose carefully displayed produce is consistently fine and delicate. Best on Fridays, 9 to 1:30 (also open Tuesdays). Place Jacques Demy."
