Just above the 3rd Arrondissement of Paris, is a little intersection of streets, between Metro Art des Metiers and Metro Temple, that is suprisingly barren for Paris. Being such a small city yet with so many neighbourhoods giving such different atmospheres making the city feeling bigger than what it is, there is still this tiny section that is, well, bare! Lacking character or that typical Parisian charm, old boarded up boulangeries look so sad!
A new neighbourhood is being born right in this triangle. A trendy manufactured village of the best high end boutiques with the best chefs in the world coming in to make La Jeune Rue - the biggest design Project Paris has ever seen bringing together food and design.
Specialty cheese shops, gourmet restaurants, decadent best-of-the-best boulangeries, patisseries, bars, clubs, clothing stores...all bneing designed by the worlds top architects and designers, this is going to be a very exciting pocket of Paris. and yes we're spilling the beans. But thats all we have so far so watch this space as the area develops into a worldwide gourmet mecca!
For now Head to the heart of the intersection and try the first of the fine dining experiences already establish and running:
Argentinian meets French cuisine in this uber trendy restaurant. Sitting in the midst of rubble and urban street chaos and bareness this restaurants is delicious, divine and so beautiful inside keeping the original decor and art nouveau artworks and touches
