Yes. Pardon me father, for I have sinned…again. This past weekend, The Parisian Flair was in New York City. We’ve tried the best, and most talked about places this fall. Guess what… We are back with some feedback! Here are our top things to do in NYC this winter.
The Mercer Hotel is home of a new American cuisine restaurant, perfectly decorated where The Parisian Flair liked taking a break and enjoyed breakfast with great company. Probably some of the best pains au chocolat we’ve had in a while. Thanks French chef Jean-Georges!
1PM – Exploring The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk Brooklyn Museum – 200 Eastern Pkwy, New York, NY 11238 October 25, 2013–February 23, 2014 http://www.brooklynmuseum.org
What’s a weekend in the city without a Brooklyn escapade…? The Parisian Flair could not resist, and started right there in the center of Brooklyn, our favorite hipsta-land. The Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition is held at the Brooklyn Museum until February 2014, so take your time but make sure to go before it closes. The mannequins are alive, the photographs are absolutely gorgeous, the crowd is beautiful and the entire experience…breathtaking. Jean Paul Gaultier makes us proud to be representing the French art de vivre. La most famous marinière is there, the French black and white movies are there, and most importantly… The Parisians are everywhere! Run, run, run to the Brooklyn Museum.
The newest exhibition on display at Milk Gallery is prodigious. We ran there and were not disappointed. Our advice: do the same!
Oh, André… You always know how to please us. Not our first time, and definitely not the last! This weekend, it’s at Le Baron that The Parisian Flair decided to dance. Andre Saraiva’s Chinatown club is on our list of things to do in NYC because it is more than just a nightclub. Located on Chinatown’s Mulberry street, Le Baron is where we want to go have fun with friends all the time. Two floors, a mezzanine, the place is real a maze and we love it. Great service, amazing friends, crazy vibes and the best music in the city. “Been there, done that,” you Parisians will tell us. Don’t be fool, try it: it’s very cool.
If you feel like eating a croque-madame while drinking rosé and listening to the sickest Europeans beats in the afternoon, then Bagatelle is where you have to be every Sunday afternoon. It starts off slowly, but the DJ comes on at 3 and the real party begins. Make sure to dress up for the occasion. Shout-outs to the French waiters, a great service and a boozy afternoon.
Tips: Don’t be scared to hop on a table and make out with strangers.
Best dinner we’ve had in so long. The Mondrian Soho offers an amazing service, the most exquisite Mediterranean food, and a great wine selection.
Start with a drink at PH-D, enjoy the breathtaking view and fancy décor. Then, head down to Electric Room and get your world rocked. Literally. We have all been there before, but it gets better every time. Once passed Damon at the door, dance to Rock’n’Roll all night long, a beer in one hand, a pretty blonde in the other. Nur Khan knows it best.
Other places we love to eat/dance at:
2AM – Don’t even think about it: VIP ROOM
Why? Wasted time, same atmosphere, same overpriced drinks, rude staff and bad service. Not surprising, but still disappointing. Even Kiss & Fly (what was there before Jean-Roch decided to take over) was funnier.
But if you dare…. Have a few more drinks than expected before you go, just to be sure you won’t remember it in the morning. Watch out for their $20 “cover” Cash Only, of course.

The paintings of Yann Houri focus on the complexity of the human subject and translate human emotions and time challenges into how we define ourselves in this mechanical and virtual age. The capture of each moment of life and each vibration is what human kind fails to admire in a contemporary lifestyle that pushes him […]

Tout d’abord – on pense connaître ces gens sur scène – ils nous sont si familiers, étonnement proche. Tout de suite on replonge dans des scènes mythiques des « Visiteurs » et c’est limite si Richard Berry ne devenait pas Christian Clavier surtout dans les scènes de tensions et de disputes.
