La Hune 

Little wonder this is one of Elbaz's favourite haunts- this literary institution has one of the best collection of design books in town.

Café de Flore

A mainstay on the Left Bank, famous for its clientele, its Art Deco interior and definitely the food.

This charming joint is still run by a mother-daughter team. And food is never wrong when cooked with so much love.

One of the most famous Japanese restaurants in town and for good reason. The teppanyaki is also rather famed.

With a city that gave us the word 'chic', it would only be apt if we had a crafter of chic to introduce his domicile city and so here are some of Monsieur Elbaz's favourite haunts in the City of Lights.
