It was in this house that Balzac wrote ‘La Comédie Humaine’. The museum, along with other things, holds personal memories of the writer and his family, numerous original editions, manuscripts and illustrations. You can also see paintings, engravings and documents about his loved ones. The museum also organizes exhibitions and events about the author. Reference library, concerts, readings (for adults). Musée Dapper • 35 bis rue Paul Valéry, 75116 Paris • Tel. : +33 (0) 1 45 00 91 75 • Since it opened in 1986, the Musée Dapper has contributed to bringing the African arts to a wider audience by hosting numerous exhibitions. Through its rigorous research and care taken into the layout of the items on display, it has become one of the best places in Paris to see African sculp- ture at its finest. As well as promoting the African arts, it now covers all the other cultural aspects of the dias- pora of the African Continent, particularly those of the Caribbean and Guyana. The Musée Dapper also offers the public opportunities to meet all kinds of artists from Africa or mixed societies through theatre or cinema. Shows open to all and story-telling sessions are also part of the regular programming at the theatre. DISCOVERY Explore Paris from 150m in the air (and up to 300m on mornings with perfect weather) aboard the air apparatus at the André Citroën Park. The experience guaranteed to thrill and serves a greater good, as well: scientific research! Not only will you enjoy the grand spectacle of Paris at your feet, but the flights also measure pollution. The balloon changes colour depending on Paris ‘air quality: red means high pollution levels, while green means the air at it’s cleanest. Price 12€ per adult for a ten minute flight. TEA HOUSE Acide Macaron • 24 Rue des Moines, 75017 Paris • Tél. : +33 (0) 9 83 87 05 0 Jonathan Blot considers it an honor to sell the experience of gourmandise. This pastry chef presents his maca- roons on rue Legendre and now also spoils his customers in a sunny tea- room in the Batignolles district. His trademark? Acidity. “I’m from a Franco –Armenian background, so I’ve always been exposed to a many different kinds of acidity.” Acidity is a flavour enhancer that also has the unusual trait of stimulating saliva- tion. Jonathan Blot became an apprentice at age 15, was trained by Ducasse, is the former pastry chef of the Plaza Athénée and the Jules Verne, and knows one thing for certain: “You judge a place on the quality of its lemon tart!”As you might imagine, his own is unforgettable. But his greatest strength is his reliance on his culinary whims.“The other day, I got a craving for some Kramik, a Flemish brioche. I made it my way, I liked it…and I put it on the menu.” RESTAURANT Les Chouettes • 32, rue de Picardie, Paris 3e • Tel. : +33 (0) 1 44 61 73 21 • • Open 8:00–1:00 • From 35€ Les Chouettes has opened in a for- mer jewelry workshop transformed into a magnificent gourmet jewel box in the trendy Upper Marais under a glass roof, two-stories of passageways with Eif- fel-style cast irons beams, alcoves, two bars and a library. The frequently changing menu offers delicious sur- prises, featuring fish and seafood (squid, sea bass Carpaccio), poultry (quail with seared foie gras and Jerusalem artichokes) and desserts (clementine Mont Blanc, hazelnut Paris-Brest). A favorite! KONG • Immeuble Pont-Neuf – 1 rue du Pont Neuf, 75001 Paris • Tel. : +33 (0) 1 40 39 09 00 • Located in the building where the Samaritaine department store used to be, at Pont Neuf, this restaurant’s decor is designer Philippe Starck’s vision of 21st -century Japan. French hipster Béatrice Ardisson has compiled the background music. Situated on the two upper floors of the former Samaritaine, it is certainly an eye-catching place. Philippe Starck’s decor is a mix of Japanese pop and 17th -century French aesthetics. With walls of glass and Plexiglas, the dining rooms are rich in color and Japanese pop art features. Once you’ve got over your initial surprise about this highly unusual interior, you’ll be swept away by the view from the glass-roofed terrace. The menu crafted by chef Richard Pommies is a subtle blend of French and Japanese food, em- phasizing the potential for successfully combining these two great culinary traditions. © CaptainHaddock/CC BY-SA 3.0 5 Maison de Balzac © Ji-Elle 5 Musée Dapper Tips for visitors to Paris • Tel. : +33 (0) 144262000 • • 47 rue Raynouard, 75016 Paris • Tél. : +33 (0) 155744180 • • 35 bis rue Paul Valéry, 75116 Paris • Tel. : +33 (0) 145009175 • • Tél. : +33 (0) 98387050 • Tel. : +33 (0) 144617321 • Tel. : +33 (0) 140390900
