Marrow

Of course I had to have bone marrow at a restaurant called Marrow. The cocktails turned out surprisingly decent as well.

The day we took the lift to the ninth floor to get on the roof of the Philharmonie de Paris, it was windy and gray, perfect with the industrial, mundane backdrop on the edge of the Périph.

Paris is not mindblowingly gorgeous at every turn like how some people would lead you to believe. Paris is capable of being ordinary too, extremely unremarkable if not for a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower in the distance.

Makes for a lovely jaunt when you are in the hood and the walk down the side of the controversial Jean Nouvel-designed facade isn’t too shabby either. It’s currently closed for the winter but will reopen next March.

Thoroughly enjoyed his more provocative work for Charles Jourdan.

Until 7 January 2018 at Palais de Tokyo. If I had to pick a section, I think Tuesday would have to be my favorite.

My second time visiting a Le Corbusier project, one that’s not usually open to the public. Merci Journées du Patrimoine weekend. One day I’ll make it to Cité Radieuse in Marseille.
