Pop-Up Paris

Inspired by Couture Week, which just ended, and all the very au courant and spontaneous things to see in Paris these days, we decided to explore everything temporary, finite and in motion right now in The City of Light.


This week’s goop collaboration

The Pop-Up Scene in Paris

The Sporting Project

74, rue des Gravilliers
+33 (0)9 52 55 11 66

The creative enterprise of Jenny Capano and Tara Gilson, who met working at 3.1 phillip lim, these pop-up dinners happen every few months, transplanting NYC restaurants to Bob's Kitchen in Paris. First, they took on Fat Radish and then, last week, Hudson Clearwater. Check in, as there are more restaurant throw downs to come from this pair. Also, Bob’s Kitchen, a popular organic lunch canteen, is a worthwhile visit any day. Here’s a delicious cocktail we tried.

The Mutiny

Shake the following well.

  • 1 1/2 oz aged rum
  • 1 oz velvet falernum
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz brown sugar syrup
  • Fill with ginger beer
  • Top with angostura bitters and a mint leaf


For listening while you read...They're calling this guy the French Eminem.
This track seemed to be on repeat all week in Paris.

14, boulevard Raspail

This is The Museum of Everything’s first foray into Paris at the new space run by Chalet Society (founded by the famed Palais de Tokyo’s former director, Marc Olivier Wahler).

The Museum of Everything is known for bringing international awareness to non-traditional, self-taught and so-called outsider artists, people who produce mainly for themselves and not for an audience. As founder James Brett puts it, these artists are motivated by a "fundamental need to communicate".

Exhibition #1.1 took about a month to curate, as the team took special care to truly understand the particularities of the space - a former Catholic seminary in the heart of St. Germain.

As to whether The Museum of Everything will continue its global activities or find a permanent home, James says, "A full-time space is a bit like marriage. As The Museum of Everything is currently a bachelor, it’s still sleeping around..."

Unique to the Paris show, The Café of Everything is a tasty pop-up resto created by the team behind London's Momo and Sketch. Working with their Parisian establishment Derrière, they have adapted their menu for a French audience and are open for late lunches and early dinners.

Table Ronde

58, rue de Saintonge
+33 (0)1 44 54 88 87

With each month comes a new chef, and with each chef, a different dinner for sixteen. Served up in a sleek space in the Marais, this is one of the more established supper clubs in Paris. Not to mention, the ultra gourmet traveling panini counter, "Pressing," coming to Table on February 14th and 15th. Check their website for updates and to sign up for a meal.

62, rue Quincampoix
+ 33 (0)1 43 79 86 80

Jonathan Kron and Kai Lorch, the brains behind the brewery Demory, have opened a temporary space near the Pompidou. They’re on 62 rue Quincampoix until the 2nd of February and then move across the street to #57. Bringing beer to a wine drinker’s city, they cleverly mix beer-based cocktails. Here are two:


Beer Collins

  • a slice of cucumber
  • two pinches of sugar (depending on your sweet tooth)
  • juice of half a lime
  • Roquette Blanche (or a good Weiss beer)

The Demoryto

  • a jigger of good bourbon
  • a bottle of Demory’s Astroblonde (or a good Pilsner)
  • a pinch of sugar
  • a squeeze of lime
  • one sprig of mint

In Good Company

131, avenue Parmentier
+ 33 (0)1 55 28 78 88

Le Dauphin, Inaki Aizpitarte’s sleek wine bar now hosts the occasional guest mixologist night with dinner by Le Dauphin and drinks c/o the hottest bartenders out there. Their first was with Tony Conigliaro of the new bar Le Coq. Keep an eye out on FB for the next collaboration.

The Burgeoning Burger Scene

Luis Menocal, a friend and fellow foodie resident, breaks down the burger scene in Paris.

44, rue d'Argout
Avg. price: 10 eur.

"Blend sticks to its French heritage and is not afraid of showing it - they cook gourmet burgers. The quality of the ingredients is there: homemade buns, fries and ketchup, and the meat is local. If you are looking for an authentic rather than gourmet burger, you’re in the wrong place. I must admit, that the burgers are tremendously good."

Paris New York
50, rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis
Avg. price: 10 eur.

"'It's all in there,' said the main waiter at PNY. 'There's a prostitute next door, the street is dirty, it feels more like New York and less like Paris.' He's right. PNY owners chose the right street for an authentic American burger: a corner of Paris that exudes decadence. The joint has a beat up 70's vibe and makes you feel like you're in for a treat. And indeed, the burgers are great. The cheddar is old, the bread is rustic and the fries are awesome. It's all in there. Good job PNY!"

Le Camion Qui Fume
(burger truck, follow on
Avg. price: 7 eur.

"Am I allowed to say oral orgasm? If not, I would say poetry in the form of buns and meat. Authentic? Yes, it's a burger truck. The ingredients are top-notch and it’s a young entrepreneur from California with a substantial culinary education who flips them. However, good things come at a cost. Due to the outstanding popularity that these burgers enjoy, the average queue time is about forty minutes on a cold day. Shake Shack customers in NYC know what I'm talking about."

Cantine California
(burger truck, follow on
Avg. price: 7 eur.

Cantine California, another food truck is not to be missed. Burgers, again but with a Californian edge, like the "Half Moon Bay" Burger. The thing about these burger trucks is, in a city where most people take the time to sit down to every meal, getting food on the go feels pretty revolutionary.

Graffiti Spotting

Between burgers, Luis snaps his favorite Parisian graffiti throughout the city.
