Sacrebleu: Insider Paris Experiences Fit for Locals and Tourists Alike

Sacrebleu Travel Assistant: Crafting Your Perfect Parisian Experience

I’ve lived in Paris on and off for the last two years, so I was curious what I would learn about my adopted city from Stephanie of Sacrebleu, who, I soon realized, is not your average Paris guide.

Before we met, Stephanie wrote to me to find out my age, interests, favorite kinds of stores and food, and whether I preferred to walk or drive around the city. Normally, Stephanie likes to set up a Skype call to meet each client and get a sense of who they are, what they want to see in Paris, how they travel, and answer any questions before they arrive.

Le Bougainville: Unfussy French Cooking near Place de la Victoire in Paris

Le Bougainville Restaurant

I recently found myself strolling near the Place de la Victoire, a business district that appeared closed for the day. Continuing in the direction of the more promising Passage Vivienne, my date and I spotting a 1950s-style café with mosaic tile floors, formica table tops, and primary color paint. We were dubious, but hungry, so we stepped in, happy to find that behind the near-empty café was a welcoming restaurant with a trove of pleased diners.
