If you want to win major brownie points on your return, bring back a box of “calissons de Provence”, oval-shaped sweets made from a blend of candied melon and marzipan. My favorite place to get them from is Puyricard. They have 2 shops in Paris: http://puyricard.fr/gb/magasins.aspx
calissons de Provence are waaay too sweet. I mean if they’re into that sort of thing they might enjoy it but otherwiseI belive it’s not the best gift.
Forget about the ‘calissons’. Has nothing to do with Paris and you’ll have to travel down to Aix en Provence to get the real ones anyway.
Bld Voltaire? Great. Go to Le Charbon in Oberkampf, you will probably end up late in the night hanging around with some good mates, talking about NYC, Brooklyn, Paris mysterious places and grid design.
Awesome blog by the way.
Hey it’s great to know you’re visiting paris. It’s a little far from the center but I recommand you the PУres Populaires (near Nation), it’s a nice place to meet graphic designers, architects, landmark designers etc.
If you don’t want to mobilize an angry parisian mob be aware that Boulevard Voltaire is in the 11th district and is one proud of it (;
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
