PICNICKING ON THE RIVER BANKS
The picnic season is officially open! Take your baskets, plaids, solar creams and go on the banks of the Seine to enjoy the sun and a good French food. Here is our favorite picnic menu à la Parisienne: one baguette, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots and radishes, cucumber sticks, hummus, one camembert, one goat cheese and a bottle of rosé. Basic. Simple. Good. The picturesque sunsets and the spectacular views of Paris are included in the menu. This is what we call “l’art de vivre à la française ” !
Quai d'Orléans and Place Louis Aragon (sunny all afternoon) 15 minutes’ walk from Hotel Monge.
