Alex Assouline Gives Us His Musts for a Parisian Trip

December 16, 2019 by Alex Assouline

With Holiday travels on everyone's mind this time of year, we ask Manhattan Committee member and Global Vice President at Assouline Publishing, Alex Assouline, to break down his must-see and must do things in Paris so you can enhance your vacation, or perhaps be enticed to indulge in a Parisian escape this winter.

Best place to experience Parisian nightlife?

All around Rue Princesse, there are so many little places, you’ll have a great time.

Top spot to experience a true Parisian meal?

Chez L’Ami Louis for sure!

Best coffee in Paris is at:

I don’t really drink coffee, but if I did, it would definitely be at Carette

Your go to spot to get fine French clothing?

Every time I go to Paris I go to a store called Wicket, located on Rue de Grenelle. I have all my suits made there, I get one suit every time I’m in Paris

What is an off the beaten path place to relax for a day in Paris?

When I need to really relax I’ll go sit around the fountain at the Palais Royal and read a book.

One place you go every time you're in Paris is:

I always need to spend at least 30 minutes on the Pont Alexandre III

A must try meal in Paris is?

This is a tough one, but it would have to be the newly added Cote de Veau aux Morilles at Hotel Costes. I had it once and it has been stuck in my head ever since!

The place you tend to avoid while in Paris is:

Champs Elysees, too crowded.

A trip to Paris would not be complete for you without a trip to:

The Puces de St. Ouen. It is a flea market right outside of Paris, you always find a hidden gem.

Please add any other top spots you would like our readers should know!

I love Hobbs Cashmere, it’s great when you are trying to get ready for winter.
