Cafe Mericourt, Musée de Montmartre, and the Tuileries Gardens: Lindsey Tramuta’s Paris

By Whitewaller

October 18, 2018

This week, we’re covering FIAC in Paris, as well as its surrounding events. To give you an insider look at the city, we’re talking to those in-the-know, who are sharing their favorite spots to dine, drink, relax, and see art at. Below, we hear from author and journalist (of The New Paris and more), Lindsey Tramuta.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
I can invariably be found eating shakshuka or a green bowl topped with grilled halloumi at Cafe Mericourt, almost weekly. It’s my favorite local canteen which also has excellent coffee. For pre-dinner drinks with a 360 view of the city, go straight to Perruche, the new bar-restaurant on the 9th floor of Printemps l’Homme store (order the Perruche spritz!), then finish with dinner at Robert, a spot that offers a modern twist on French cooking.

WHERE TO SEE ART
My tastes veer classic versus contemporary—you can’t go wrong with a visit to the Musée d’Orsay but do make a stop at a smaller institution, like the Musée de Montmartre.

WHERE TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN
If I’m not hanging around coffee shops, I am probably in a bookstore and Paris is full of the most inspiring shops. Go to Shakespeare & Co to browse or catch one of their weekly author events or visit Galignani, my other favorite shop, which has a mix of French and English language titles. When I go there, I typically head across the street, new literary acquisition in hand, to the Tuileries Gardens and sit back and read to relax.
