Sophie Hulme, accessories designer Maison Plisson is a wonderful food store with a restaurant; it has the most amazing products, from jams to juices, which are sourced all over France. Maison Plisson, 93 Boulevard Beaumarchais, 75003 (lamaisonplisson.com).
Kilian Hennessy, perfumer My wife and I eat at Frenchie – the ambience is half Parisian bistro, half NY loft, serving French food with a highly creative twist – or we head to L’Ambroisie for a cosy candlelit dinner. Frenchie, 5 Rue du Nil, 75002 (+331-4039 9619; frenchie-ruedunil.com). L’Ambroisie, 9 Place des Vosges, 75004 (+331-4278 5145; ambroisie-paris.com).
Julie de Libran, artistic director of Sonia Rykiel Whole families become flâneurs in Le Marais, enjoying the scene with a little slow shopping and café sitting. For lunch, I like L’Ami Louis, a tiny, narrow restaurant like a train carriage serving large portions of very traditional food with a degree of ceremony. L’Ami Louis, 32 Rue du Vertbois, 75003 (+331-4887 7748).
Jeremy King, restaurateur and hotelier When I’m in the Marais, I head for Au Petit Fer à Cheval, where the floor clearly influenced the bar in my restaurant Colbert. I can’t travel without observing and learning. Au Petit Fer à Cheval, 30 Rue Vieille du Temple, 75004 (+331-4272 4747).
Delphine Ninous, womenswear designer Marché des Enfants Rouge is a half-covered market where you can do grocery shopping, but they also have several restaurants with different food from around the world – the Japanese restaurant is amazing and there is a couscous place and an Italian. Marché des Enfants Rouge, 39 Rue de Bretagne, 75003.
Hervé Van der Straeten, designer I often go to Les Philosophes, a bistro where everything is homemade; it’s essentially my daily canteen. Les Philosophes, 28 Rue Vieille du Temple, 75004 (+331-4887 4964).
