Favorite Park. Jardin de Palais Royal


jardin de Palais Royal

There are a few places in Paris that are equally local and super touristy, but Palais Royal hits the sweet spot. Most of the tourists are impersonating flamingos up front on the black and white Colonnes de Buren. While the gardens and arcades behind still have a timeless Parisian calm.

Favorite Picnic Spot


Quai de Valmy_Jessie Kanelos Weiner.jpg

This is my favorite destination in the warmer Parisian months, perfect for people watching and competitive picnicking. 

Favorite Cheap Eat


Miznon_favorite cheap eat_Jessie Kanelos Weiner.jpg

Favorite Cheap eat: Miznon. This Israeli outpost is impossibly noisy, vegetable strewn and overpacked. But it’s all worth it for the ratatouille served on a generous bed of tahini. And everything is finger-licking good. 


Marche President wilson_Jessie Kanelos Weiner.jpg

Marché President Wilson Paris: Nestled between three of my favorite museums (Palais Tokyo, Musée d’art Moderne, Palais Galleria) with a a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower, this market will make anyone channel Julia Child with its drop-dead gorgeous selection of French ingredients. 

Favorite Restaurant : Café de la Nouvelle Mairie

I love this excellent neo-bistro with classic French faire, natural wine and a friendly neighborhood feel not far from the pantheon. 

Who will be catching Jessie on her book tour this Spring? Is anyone planning to join in Chicago? Comment below!

  1. Jessie’s illustrations are delightful, Rebecca! One petit observation here – for first time visitors to Paris wanting to visit Jessie’s favorite addresses, the actual addresses would be useful. I also would love to know where to find Miznon and Cafe De La Nouvelle Mairie.
