Calling all English enthusiasts and Albion admirers - make a note of our must-visit tips this summer as Parisian chic meets cool Britannia.
Although not nearly as catchy as NyLon, PyLon (yes, that's a mix of Paris and London) is definitely in the air for Summer 2013. A Brit has won the Tour de France for the second year running, London-based acts including Palma Violets and James Blake have enthralled the French capital with sell-out gigs, Brit model Cara Delevingne is the darling of Rue Cambon-based Chanel - for whom she recently appeared in a special pre-Fall teaser - and a London-themed August special edition of Vogue Paris is on the newsstands. Be on trend and live La Vie En (Tudor) Rose this summer with Vogue.fr's five must-visit locations for expats and Anglophiles alike. From pub grub at Le Bombardier to a Brit wine bar, its two iconic capitals for the price of one.
A taste of the old country: Fish and chips
might be on the menu at plenty of US diners in Paris, but typical British fish & chips adored by everyone from top model Georgia May Jagger
to the Queen
(probably) are harder to find. Breaded, fried fish and thick-cut fries are only available at a handful of Anglo-inspired Parisian eateries
- here are three of our favourites:
The chic restaurant: Le Bristol
This Michelin-starred Parisian palace serves up chic chips which are light to boot. An exquisite treat for expats and in-the-know Parisians alike.
114 Faubourg at the Bristol, 112 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75008 Paris.
The neo-bistro: La Maison-Mère
Sundays only, all rise for La Maison Mère's fish & chips du chef. God save fish & chips, definitely.
La Maison Mère, 4 rue de Navarin, 75009 Paris.
The English pub: Le Bombardier
Fish & chips, British beers, and just the right atmosphere make Le Bombardier the worst-kept secret in Paris. The next best thing to your local.
Le Bombardier, 68 Rue de la Montagne Ste Geneviève, 75005 Paris.
British basics: Marks & Spencer
Marks & Spencer made a comeback to the French capital in late 2011 with a new store on the Champs-Elysées
and has since opened a second in Paris suburb Levallois Perret. Scones, pies, Cheddar cheese, muffins, hot cross buns, chicken tikka wraps, marmalade and British sausages make this a regular stop for home comforts for Brits
about town as well as Anglophile Frenchies.
Marks & Spencer, 100 Avenue des Champs-Elysées, 75008 Paris.
Another to try: l'Epicerie Anglaise, where Baxter's chutney, Branston pickle and plenty of Heinz varieties are on offer.
Tasty treats: Bread and Roses
Restaurant? Food-store? Bakery
? Tea room? Bread and Roses is all of these things, offering healthy, light breakfasts
, delicious lunches
like goat's cheese and zucchini tart and charming English teatime selections. We love the sticky toffee pudding, carrot cake and muffins, washed down with a citrus, mint and acacia honey iced tea
Bread and Roses, 25 rue Boissy d'Anglas, 75008 & 62 rue Madame 75006 Paris.
Well-furnished: The Conran Shop
Sir Terence Conran's shop is a must for contemporary
style, designer furniture
, lighting, fabrics
, crockery, high-tech gadgets
. Mix and match the impeccable taste of one of Britain's greatest designers
with antique treasures
from the French capital's many flea markets
stores for a decorative entente amicale.
The Conran Shop, 117 rue du Bac 75007 Paris.
Plenty of bottle: Willi's Wine Bar
Brit Mark Williamson welcomes regulars to Willi's Wine Bar around well-laid tables or the long oak wood bar
, for a market
-fresh menu of carefully chosen and well-sourced dishes
, washed down with a bottle from the wine
menu. A good all-rounder.
