The Paris Scene

This fashion season, the City of Light has a lot to offer — from art exhibitions to shops to spas. Here’s a smattering of the latest.

AU REVOIR CHARCUTERIE: It’s a vegan, gluten-free moment in Paris, where there are a plethora of stylish veggie options these days. After a first restaurant in the northern Marais neighborhood (opposite Nanashi and not far from the Broken Arm concept store and café — two healthy eateries), Café Pinson has recently opened a second location on Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, in the 10th arrondissement near the hip Christophe Michalak Takeaway pastry shop. The space is bright with geometric-print fabrics and tiled walls.

Co-owner Agathe Audouze, a former beauty and fashion executive, joined forces with an American chef to create the vegan dishes.

The fixed menu includes a starter, main course and dessert. Selections include the black quinoa tabbouleh with kale, grated raw cauliflower and balsamic vinegar; a risotto of black whole rice, kale, onions, pumpkin and sesame seeds, and a raw cocoa dessert. Madeleines are made with bergamot essential oil and honey and served with no butter or wheat.
