    Musée du Palais de Tokyo

    Effervescent, playful, adventurous, the Palace of Tokyo, opened in Paris ten years ago to much excitement : an anti-museum par excellence, a rebellious plot of wasteland in the 16th arrondissement, a quirky and ambitious “palace”, a place of exchanges and surprises, it was the pioneer of a movement of reconciliation between the City of Light and contemporary art.

    Welcome to the bustling Brasserie Thoumieux, formerly the Bouillon Chartier, bought in 1923 by Martial Thoumieux and transformed in 2009 by Chef Jean-François Piège and his associate Thierry Costes.

    A mix of collectables and modern design makes for a less formal brasserie with a contemporary, laid-back atmosphere!

    Despite its location in the sedate 7e arrondissement, this has quickly become the place to be seen, with food that's a good notch above brasserie fare. A juicy Angus beef hamburger comes with a superfluous shower of Parmesan and ultra skinny fries, while the more sophisticated slow-cooked salmon is accompanied by vegetables from star market gardener Joël Thiébault. For dessert, try the piping-hot churros with chocolate sauce.

    Le Marché des Enfants Rouges

    The oldest market in Paris (1615).
    An enormous guinguette, the Marché des Enfants Rouges is the market to visit in Paris : historical, lively, high-quality, authentic…Every morning, the colourful stalls add a highly visual dimension to this market making for some splendid photos. The particularity of this market, with its Moroccan, Japanese, Lebanese, Chinese and West Indian stalls, is that it is possible to eat reasonably-priced specialities from across the world at the tables which each stall sets out. The market owes its name, (‘Market of Red Children’), to an orphanage where the children wore red capes. It was listed as a historical monument in 1982.
