Hi guys! Last week I went to Paris for a weekend of work ( Mode City - Interfiliere swimwear shows). Lucky me, I still had almost the entire monday free so I headed to Le Marais, my favourite neighborhood: full of shops, restaurants and small cafes. I've bumped into Sarah Jessica Parker ( no kidding, she was with her son and a bodyguard) at Repetto shop in rue du Vielle Temple.
Anyway, another thing I love about Le Marais it's the graffiti. I always take pictures of the newest art on the street. So here's a selection of some of the best graffitis in Paris at this moment. Adorable.
Last saturday i've finally got the chance to try the hottest new mexican restaurant in town: the famous La Bodega Negra. The restaurant is located in the basement of what appears to be a peep show or a sex shop. Very exciting and very London.
We arrived at 22pm and the atmosphere was vibrant and very young, maybe a bit too young for my taste. I thought- call me a moaner- that there was also too much noise associated with some loud background music, which made us scream to each other every time we needed to comunicate.
As La Bodega Negra is not your typical restaurant, we asked the waiter to help us choose. What can i say?...well, maybe the choice wasnt the best. The guacamole was just ok, las tostadas weren't that special and there was way too much chilly in the tacos...the night was saved by a perfect sea bass but by the time it arrived on the table we were already too much disapointed by the rest of the food.
I think this is a great restaurant for hip londoners that care more about margaritas and having a laugh then about really good food. Still, worth a visit if you're in London with a group of friends.
