Love all the new ways of experiencing the food of Paris while meeting new people!

Once a week I organize a meeting in my house with my friends and we eat all we can.
It is a good way to know people

Sounds like some fun dining could be had……xv

Amazing list! I can’t wait to try Un artiste à la table… Sounds divine!

Great post Bry! Thanks for selecting my photos from Very Swell!

I went to Jim Haynes’ for dinner during my first-ever trip to Paris. I went there with some poets (now there’s a by-gone profession) that I met upstairs at Shakespeare & Company. I still remember several conversations that I had that night- 20 years ago (ack, already??)and it remains one of my ultimate “Parisian” experiences.

CoLunching! OMG what a cute idea! As a “freelancer” just don’t know if I would have the guts to do it.

I was invited to host the first Philadelphia “Co-lunching” event, and I am so excited! The fact that it is based in Paris makes it all the more exciting for me, bien sur. 😉

Wow, I really didn’t know there were so many of these types of clubs around. Un artiste a la Table sounds really intriguing – going to check them out now. Thanks Bryan for these cool finds!
