The best stuff to do in Paris this March is a round-up of places to eat, drink, and stay per usual – no tourist traps of course. We have Paris Fashion Week, Omnivore Food Show, and St. Patrick’s Day. The weather has been quite rainy and will stay this way for at least until the end of the week, but we’ll see warmer and drier days in April, just hold on my loves. In the meantime check out the passages of Paris and the Public museums that are free on first Sundays to wander – flanerie – around when it’s wet outside.
We’re enjoying the food at Bonhomie the snazzy decor lends well for a romantic dinner and the bar comes full for a night out with the pals too. During the day they have a set menu at 25 euros for lunch including coffee. Otherwise most plates run 15 Euros .

On Rue Rouchouart in Paris you can find La Binouze (french slang for Beer) a bottle shop where you can not only pick up some of France’s best craft beer but the food is so damn good! If you’re a cheese and sausage platter kind of lover – you’ll be in heaven here as they take so much care in the selection, presentation and explanation of everything in the shop. Also be sure to follow Paris Beet expert Nicole from Tasting Nitch as she sometimes hold Beer Workshops here.

You know I’m the coffee queen and I’m so happy with all the new spots opening that I can share with you guys! This month I introduced you to this little heaven in Montmartre that serves vegan food and the coffee is from Coutume: Abattoir Vegetal.
There is a new mall in the La Villette Park in the north of Paris. It’s a cool place to go on the weekends as its open everyday. And on the outside all around is nature either the park or canal. Inside they have even a Marks and Spenser. I was intrigued by the IFLY school – where you can free fall in this long transparent tube!
Hotel du Temps Paris is a renovated 4 star boutique hotel close to Gare du Nord, perfect for a central location. Whether business or romantic getaway you’ll love the clean aesthetics and kind staff. Around 140 euros per night.
