Until February 2nd, the Grand Palais pays tribute to Niki de Saint Phalle. Visuel artist, sculptress, paintress and film-maker, she became world-famous with her “Nanas”. The exhibition also shows her political involvement – she was a radical feminist – throughout her life.
The art of Eating, rites and traditions at the Musée Dapper takes us to Africa, Insulindia and Oceania. An opportunity to discover the traditions in the preparation and the consumption of food. The exhibition also highlights the knowledge and the actions that were practiced every day and on special occasions, during ceremonies and rituals. From October 15th to July 12th.
The Barbier de Séville is back to the Opera de Paris. This masterpiece, which gave Rossini his international renown, is probably the most famous opera buffa, which will never get us bored. It is presented here in a new production, with a staging by Damiano Michieletto, who makes his Paris Opera debuts. Until November 3rd, at Bastille.
After Senderens, Passage 53 and In de Wulf in Belgium, the Chef Ryuji Teshima has just opened his own restaurant: Pages.

On the menu too: guinea fowl from Patis with carrots covered with egg yolk and quackgrass, and for the dessert, a sorrel sorbet, verbena and sudashi. Menus at 40 and 65 Euro for lunch, 80 Euro for dinner. Closed on Sundays and Mondays. 4 rue Auguste Vacquerie, 16th.
For a gourmet break during a shopping session on the Left Bank, we recommend La Table, new restaurant in La Grande Epicerie de Paris (at Le Bon Marché). In this light-bathed place under a large glass roof, you will have the choice between 3 menus “à la française” depending on the time of your visit: for example for lunch, a fillet of sole covered with herbs followed by an apple tentation, at tea time, a brioche “like a French toast”, orange marmalade and vanilla from Madagascar (except if you prefer a farm ewe-milk yogurt, with Alsatian quince jelly from Christine Ferber?), and for dinner a gourd soup with goat milk and chestnuts. Everything is refined and light. Dishes from 3 to 27 Euro. First floor of La Grande Epicerie, from Monday to Saturday, from 10.30 am to 7.30 pm.
