Fashion (fooding) week #1

   Looking back, I realized that this year's autumn Fashion Week might as well have been called Fashion Fooding Week.

Since September I've been meaning to post some of the many dining and imbibing spots - among old (and new) friends - before, during, and just after Paris Fashion Week.


Above: Fouquet's, with its red awning dominating a corner on the Champs-Elysées, was a fitting, reliable, and très parisien point de rendez-vous

Inside: small plaques next to tables denote some of its star-studded habitués from past and present.
Outside: a shining walkway bears the names of recipients of French cinema's coveted César Award.

 Founded 1899 / listed a historical French monument 1990
Menu in collaboration with Chef Pierre Gagnaire

Brasserie Le Fouquet's
