PARIS / lunch @ THE RITZ, L'ESPADON
With Paris Fashion Week coming up, getting away from it all will be of paramount importance. I always like to treat myself to lunch at the Ritz's L'Espadon. Depending on what time of the day you arrive, you can enjoy a sophisticated prix fixe menu by culinary genius Nicholas Sale in just one hour -- either in the atrium or at one of the glamorous tables in the salon. It was also the same place where Coco Chanel and the Nazis would cheerfully eat during WWII while the rest of the world was falling to pieces.
