Metro: Hôtel de Ville (lines 1 and 11)
We could spend hours in one of Paris’s original department stores, where you can find everything from high-end art supplies and stationery to an eclectic selection of lighting for your home, to curtains and doorknobs, or specialty items for home maintenance, decoration and repair, to clothing, shoes and accessories for the whole family. And in the summers you can enjoy evening drinks on the rooftop at the Perchoir Marais (entrance at 37 rue de la Verrerie)
Metro: Wagram (line 3)
A true family-run restaurant, loved by the locals and off the beaten path in the 17th arrondissement. Here you will find authentic southwestern French dishes such as foie gras, or duck and bean cassoulet.
On top of the typical fare and relaxed atmosphere, you will love their boutique at the entrance of the restaurant for something, including bottles of fine Armagnac, to take-away.
