Blue train restaurant
Visiting this magical place gives you the opportunity to experience the wonderful sensation of stepping inside a time machine and finding yourself in the Belle Epoque.
It was in 1900 at the time of the Universal Exhibition that the station buffet, which later became Le Train Bleu, was built. Marius Toudoire, the famous architect behind the Gare de Lyon clock tower and façade, was entrusted with carrying out these works. The management of the railway company hoped to create an unmissable gourmet experience in a luxurious, modern and legendary setting.
The station buffet was unveiled in 1901 by the French President Emile Loubet and quickly attracted people from high society and artists.
In 1963, the buffet became “Le Train Bleu” as a tribute to the “Paris-Vintimille” line dating from 1868, the legendary train that served towns in the French Riviera along the Mediterranean coast.

Tasty treats at the Museum of Romantic Life
Hidden away from the touristic districts
of Paris, the Museum of Romantic Life is a restful place that evokes the years
between 1830 and 1850. I visited this place in Spring and really liked this
quiet and peaceful estate in the 9th arrondissement.
Rue Chaptal is a residential street in the 9th arrondissement at the foot of the Hill of Montmartre. The street runs close to a district called Nouvelle-Athènes (New Athens). This speculative property development from 1830 included residential buildings and studio houses for the many artists who settled in the neighbourhood. The Nouvelle-Athènes quickly became the principal intellectual district of Paris. Many of these studio houses disappeared or were transformed to other use. One of them marvellously survived: the Scheffer-Renan mansion. The one that now houses the collections of the museum of Romantic Life. Find number 16 rue Chaptal and walk to the end of a long paved lane.

The Amour restaurant reminds us the
insolent past of the 9th district called Pigalle. A real Parisian Bistrot with
red leather benches and Pin Up’s shoots on the walls. In the restaurant, you
can eat, drink or just seat in the exotic garden, to read a book. Parisians and
tourists like to meet there, same for fashion people and artists. Breakfast,
lunch, dinner or brunch on sundays and saturdays are
24/7 non stop service.

After their ten-year tenure in Palais de Tokyo as Tokyo Eat, restaurateur Eric Wapler and chef Thierry Bassard join forces to create radioeat, a new restaurant in concert hall and recording studio - Maison de la Radio. The home of Radio France, this futuristic building has a place in the heart of many Parisians. For its numerous concerts, taped radio emissions and auditorium with a 5,320-pipe organ. So, with such a loyal following, it’s hard to imagine that they never had anywhere to feed hungry music fans. Until radioeat…
Once you're done eating, head to Le Belair bar on the second floor for a post-drink cocktail and a boogie if you're feeling in the mood.
Avenue du Président Kennedy,
What a beautiful spot Daroco is! Supported by majestic concrete columns and solid stone walls, dressed in light terrazzo and blue velvet, and topped with a huge mirrored ceiling for narcissists with stiff necks, the flamboyant restaurant from Julien Ross and Alexandre Giesbert (Zebra, Perruche) has quickly become the new temple to Parisian hype.
