For Whitewaller’s inaugural London&Paris issue, out for FIAC 2016, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things Paris—that shared with us how to navigate the city during the art fair. Next up, director of Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard, Colette Barbier, who shares her top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax next week.
WHERE TO EAT
The restaurant Loulou at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs—their delicious linguine alle vongole with poutargue from Sicily. Also Zébulon, and Septime, two wonderful restaurants!
WHERE TO SIP
CopperBay—I love the Frozen Mauresque, but ask the skilled and welcoming barmen for advice. They have an incredible choice of cocktails.
WHERE TO NETWORK
At the lounge at FIAC, and if you managed to get an invitation, at the Bal Jaune!
WHERE TO SEE AR T
The Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard of course, with at the moment the excellent selection of young artists curated by Isabelle Cornaro. The Palais de Tokyo, and LE BAL for photography.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
The terrace of Concrete with the best of DJs!
WHERE TO RELAX
Unwind at the marvelous Bar Hemingway of the Ritz Place Vendôme.
