Angelina – Paris, France

Tis the season for hot chocolate. Personally, it’s always the right time for hot chocolate, or cold for that matter. If you find yourself in Paris during this winter (or whenever… perhaps you’ve decided to move there due to the corrupt political climate here in the states) you must go to Angelina for some chocolat […]

Galerie Lafayette – Paris

I have been to the mother ship of department stores and foodie specialty shops. There’s no going back for me. I have seen God. La Galerie Lafayette is stunning and incredible to behold, started in 1896 it is everything I love and hate about this world. It reminds you that you are either part of […]

Sacha Finkelsztajn: La Boutique Jaune – Le Marais

Paris has had its ups and downs with us Jews. Mostly downs. Sadly the once-thriving Jewish quarter of Le Marais is all but non-existent. Mainly due to the influx of bougie boutiques buying out family run businesses. There is, however, a crap load of falafel. Nothing wrong with that, just saying there’s a lot of […]

Elmer – Paris, France

In the 6 years since I’ve visited Paris, the culinary scene has changed. There’s a foodie revolution happening and I love it. Perhaps it’s due to a new wave of millennial chefs not afraid to play around with the oh so typical French cuisine, or the influx of immigrants. Whichever the case I think it’s […]

Soul Kitchen – Montmartre, Paris

Today I’m gonna share with you a spot in Paris you must go to! Continuing my love affair with Montmartre is Soul Kitchen. I know, it doesn’t sound very French, and it’s really not. Soul Kitchen is basically a hipster coffee shop that serves breakfast and lunch. This is a great little gem to sit […]

Coquelicot – Montmartre, Paris

Montmartre is probably one of my favorite places to explore in Paris. It’s easy to see why my Great-grandmother spent so much time here hanging with all the artists and going to the Moulin Rouge. From all that I’ve heard, she sounds like quite the wild child. Probably why they married her off so young… […]

Capri – Rue Richer

There’s nothing quite like an overnight flight and landing in a city just as the sun is rising to really throw your body for a loop. Jet lag is an understatement. With a 6 hour time difference between Paris and NYC, our plane landed just as we would have been going to bed. Sadly our […]

11 Nights in Paris

You might have noticed I haven’t been blogging for a couple of weeks. I hope you have missed me. I have some amazing foodie experiences to tell you about since I was on holiday with my mom and grandmama in Paris for 11 nights! Ah Paris, Je t’amie.   This was my second time in […]

Mahina – Base Terre, Guadeloupe

I’m big on eating where the locals eat when on vacation. I really try and stay away from tourist traps. The food usually sucks and it’s overpriced. Mahina, on the Rue de la Vague Bleue, was jammed packed every day with locals, so we knew we had to eat there. And we did. Twice. You’re […]

Grand Anse – Guadeloupe

One of my favorite things is going to beach. Grand Anse, on the Basse-Terre side of Guadeloupe, is considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. With rolling hills in the background and crystal blue water, it’s not difficult to see why. One of the coolest things about Grand Anse is the food […]
