What are your Parisian tips for our readers? ◊ A bar where to bask? Le Loulou, at the Museum of Decorative Arts. ◊ A restaurant to adopt? Lala cooks! The restaurant that I opened with my friend David Lahner in my flagship store on place des Victoires. ◊ A favorite market? The Raspail organic market, one of the rare organic markets in the capital (Sunday morning. Boulevard Raspail, between rue du Cherche-Midi and rue de Rennes, 75006), and also the Marché Président-Wilson. I go there for Joël Thiébault's vegetables, ultra-fresh fish and charcuterie.
