Tips From a Paris Insider: Stephanie Frasco

Stephanie Frasco

We love passing on great tips from Paris Insiders!  Meet Stephanie Frasco.  Stephanie is a Social Media Consultant and as the Community Manager for Dashlane, she just returned from living in Paris for the winter.  She recommends:

1. Massage 

Book a massage for the day you get in.  It helps to rid your jet lag.  Not only will it melt your airplane kinks away but you will leave feeling fresh and ready to walk your heart out!

I recommend Institut Thai Rachawadee -  in the 5th  thai-rachawadee.fr

 

2.  Food 

It should come as no surprise that eating your way through Paris can be worth the trip itself.  Of course the French food is spectacular, but Paris is filled with ethnic restaurants that might surprise you.  Eat everything that calls your name!  You will be happy you did.  Some of my favorite restaurants in Paris (ethnic and French) 

L’Office – (contemporary)  - http://hungryforparis.squarespace.com/blog/2011/11/16/loffice-good-eating-in-this-in-box-b.html 

Dans les Landes (small plates) - http://hungryforparis.squarespace.com/blog/2011/5/5/dans-les-landes-southwestern-french-tapas-and-a-really-good.html 

Hyang-Ly - (Korean BBQ)http://www.yelp.com/biz/hyang-ly-paris

 

3.  Flea markets and food markets -

Paris is filled with Flea markets and food markets selling everything from fresh cheeses at the food markets to vintage Chanel bags and Victorian Era furniture at the antique markets.  Hopping from stall to stall and market to market is a great way to spend an afternoon.  If you find yourself in Paris during the warmer months, make sure you take your bounty (from the food stalls) and head to one of the many public parks for an enjoyable picnic.  If you happen to be in Paris in the winter don’t forget to check out the Christmas Markets.  

Favorites: Rue Monge market & Christmas Market at La Défense
