COMING SOON // GOSSIP // NOTES
Does anyone know when Pierre Touitou’s jumping VIVANT restaurant will reopen after renovations???
They say SAINT LAURENT’s much anticipated new flagship, inside the former Colette space, at 213 rue Saint-Honoré, will open in January 2019.
New restaurant MAISON from chef Sota Atsumi (ex Clown Bar) is also set to open next January, at 3 rue Saint Hubert, 75011.
The cult Palais Royal flagship will not be the only boutique in Paris as a new SERGE LUTENS space is to open at 324 Rue Saint-Honoré this autumn.
An OTT new APPLE STORE is coming to 114 avenue des Champs-Élysées in December, designed by Brit architect Norman Foster, who also signed Apple Park, the company’s 5 billion Cali headquarters.
In March 2019, the famous, family owned department store GALERIES LAFAYETTE on Boulevard Haussmann will open a massive new site on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées (n° 52), a department store of the future, focusing on “disruption” and “experience”.
NEW SHOPPING FOR THE SEASON
The offbeat but elegant Scandi perfumer has just opened its Paris flagship at 199 rue Saint-Honoré during fashion week, hot on the heels of the just-opened London boutique in Soho, and joining flagships in Stockholm and New York.
199, Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001
NB epicureans and flâneurs: there are some very big foodie names (Yannick Alléno, Pierre Hermé, Anne-Sophie Pic, Thierry Marx…) attached to this sprawling, super-ambitious new Left Bank quarter, where chic food court meets luxe shopping arcade meets gallery and gym.
53-57, Rue de Grenelle, 75007
The fun continues for these fruit freaks with this new factory-shop and café under one of the arches of the Viaduc des Arts. Here they’ll be preparing and selling their small-batch jams and continuing to experiment with original recipes, like maybe apple, fennel and rosebud. There’s also a fresh breakfast, brunch and lunch menu.
17, Avenue Daumesnil, 75012
Wander this new flagship’s suite of elegant rooms, decorated like a classic Parisian apartment, and discover the French luxury shoemaker’s stylish collections, including the fun, first capsule “Papiers” by new creative director Olivier Saillard. They’re all still handcrafted in Limoges.
55, Avenue des Champs-Élysées, 75008
NEW RESTAURANTS & BARS FOR THE SEASON
A sophisticated Riviera style garden suspended on the rooftop above the Printemps de l’Homme department store, and open from breakfast to 2am every day. Spectacular views over the monuments and rooftops of Paris season a short and modern menu where the focus is on quality.

MAISON PLISSON 2
Its slow food mantra has proved gold, and now the multi-tasking gourmet grocer/bottle shop boasts this second HQ, almost triple the size of the original. Innovations include a cookware corner, tasting salon, and roomier restaurant all about family-style Gallic classics.
35 place du Marché Saint-Honoré, 75001
A racy new destination inside the Cité de l’Architecture, decorated by designer of the moment Joseph Dirand in a glamorous celebration of the 1930s. From the devastating terrace overlooking the Eiffel Tower, enjoy a fresh seafood platter, ceviche, or turbot from the briny menu.
Palais de Chaillot, 1 place de Trocadéro, 75016
The team from Le Servan are behind this vibed-up table celebrating everything there is to love about Asian cuisine, from sashimi to cold noodle salad, crispy fried chicken to sweet leche flan, all washed down with cold beer and natural wines. (No reservations)
52 rue Saint-Maur, 75011
Inside a splendid building by Art Nouveau innovator Hector Guimard, out in the depths of the 16th arrondissement, you’ll find this sophisticated cocktail and coffee bar that also offers a creative all-day bar menu, maybe fresh asparagus or a perfect ajitsuke tamago egg.
17 rue Jean de la Fontaine, 75016
