Can you tell us more about Ten Belles and how you started it? Ten Belles opened in September, it’s a partnership between the team of Le Bal Café (which is a restaurant with a British style of food) and me about the coffee.
And what about the new coffee scene in Paris? The Paris coffee scene was hard to start, we spent 4 years of organizing coffee events before people started to talk about us. Now we’ve made a point and it’s time to rock.
If your kitchen could talk, what would it say? Yes, My kitchen is talking, they’re called Madison and Mardi and they say “Service Please”
All time favorite places to go:
For a date: L’Entrée des Artistes
To hang out with friends: Cork and Cavan (an English Pub on the canal)
To get a drink: Mary Celeste for the cocktails and oysters
To have a fancy meal: Le Bal Café
To go out and party : L’Inconnu at the cave with a gin & tonic
My motto in life is: Drinking GOOD coffee makes you sexy!
