Terroir Parisien






[top: roasted duckling and apples; bottom: braised sole with mushrooms]

I'm not one to usually take pictures of my food, but this meal at Terroir Parisien was worth writing about, so I snapped a few pics for the blog.  This is the place where you want to come for classic French cooking, but in a modern sense.  All the French classics are here, but interpreted in a new style-- lighter, funkier, newer, just better.  True bistro food, highlighting local producers around Paris.  Simple and yummy, set in a magnificent old treasure of a building, a great place for an introduction or re-introduction to French cuisine.

YSL Permanent Collection




Hedi Slimane, as head of Saint Laurent, has decided some of the YSL items should be always and forever available.  Check out the aptly-named Permanent collection, including the Duffle coat and Duffle Bag, above. [Also available in black, bien sur.]  Because classic never goes out of style, n'est-ce pas?
