A very chic picnic at the Hôtel Particulier Montmartre


Sitting in the grass, facing an army of free-loading ants, is definitely not your style. However, if the picnic is served at a table in a superb secret garden of Montmartre, big fave of inside-track Parisians and socialites, that changes everything.

When the weather is balmy, Monday to Friday from 11:30am to 3pm, the venerable Hôtel Particulier Montmartre is organising not-to-be-missed country events in its open sky private setting of 900 m2. A real gem.

Ultimate snobbism, once you have picked your menu, a lovely old-fashioned wicker basket appears. Inside, pretty porcelain plates to unwrap carefully as well as deluxe nibbles. For us a delicious pot of burrata cream and dried tomatoes, radishes, an excellent veggie quiche, a bunch of grapes and a fab chocolate mousse. Add to that a lemonade or a glass of wine and let yourself be carried away …

Country outing, Monday to Friday at lunch time, €26
