There is always time for Paris, no matter the season. What better time than autumn for a jaunt to the chic capital for a brief stay in a luxe hotel, an elegant meal and an afternoon of culture and shopping. Read on for the current Parisian picks from Indagare and to shop our French designers.
This fall, what?s old is new again on the Paris dining scene. Three historic and celebrated restaurants have reopened with d?cor and menus fit for 21st-century gourmands. The cozy dining room at La Ferme Saint Simon is the ideal spot for a prix-fixe lunch after touring the Musee d?Orsay, while Yannick Alleno au Ledoyen will please locavore gourmands looking for an elegant dining experience in an only-in-Paris setting. In a departure from the elegant and traditional style of the hotel, the Plaza Ath?n?e?s restaurant serves a surprisingly informal menu of vegetarian-friendly dishes that feature fish, seasonal vegetables and rather un-French grains like quinoa and bulgur wheat.

Paris museums and galleries save their biggest and best shows for the fall when the international contemporary art fair FIAC hits, and this year is extra special?thanks to the newly-opened Fondation Louis Vuitton and renovated Paris Mint. Plus, one-of-a-kind boutiques like La Galerie MiniMasterpiece, Chez moi and Officine Generale offer art-inspired pieces and keep Paris on top as one of the world?s shopping capitals.
And as usual, those heading to the French capital will have no shortage of luxe hotel options: the recently unveiled Plaza Ath?n?e and Peninsula add even more Parisian glamour to an already elegant crop of properties.
