Le Sense du Luxe

Ask a French girl

It's rainy here in NYC today, and chilly to boot. This basically makes us want to close shop and head home to fire up a movie and start happy hour a little early. I found this advice from Man Repeller perfect for a day like this! Wine advice from a French girl. Oui Oui.

While we are on the subject of French drinking... I always find when we are lazing in a French cafe, that I am always overwhelmed by the desire to bottle up the ambience and experience and bring it home. The romance, the joie de vivre, the simple sexiness of it all. Alas, back home things are not quite as ooh la la. However! I have found those adorable drinking glasses that are in every bistro within a stone's throw of the Seine. Here's where you can score your own Picardie glassware.

Lastly, If you ask a million people which is their favorite bistro in Paris, you will get a million different answers. So here is ours: Le Comptoir in the 6th Arr. It is always charming, truly delicious, and some of the best people watching I have ever experienced. Go early, or have an afternoon snack at their casual L'Avant Comptoir next door. You can't miss.

Bon weekend!
