The 9th arrondissement of Paris is known as the Madeleine/Opéra district. It has grand boulevards and world class shopping. This is a diverse and artistic area. You can find the Opéra Garnier and it’s spectacular architecture and artwork. It was the setting for the famed Phantom of the Opera. If you are lucky, try to see a ballet performance here, it will be a lifelong memory.

On the Boulevard Hausmann you can enjoy major department store shopping with Printemps & the Galleries Lafayette. Don’t forget to go to the roof of both for amazing views of Paris. I love having tea on the terrace of the Galeries Lafayette with my girlfriends and clients!

In the 9e, you have Pigalle to the North and that is the location of my foodie pick today. The one spot that I love to hit is Buvette Gastrothèque. This cute & trendy restaurant bar is amazing. I love the coq au vin & it offers lots of vegetarian options as well. It has a really good vibe and great energy.

Ready for some great food energy?
