Before I left for NY, I met up with some friends from NY at St. Germain bar & restaurant Le Schmuck. I heard from some girls in the Wine Club I belong to that it was a good bar and had a bartender that’s a dead ringer for Ryan Gosling. Umm – I’m so there!
Well, although I didn’t see Ryan Gosling’s doppelganger, I did have a good time here. The space is really cool and although I was nervous that the food wasn’t going to be good because it’s more known for drinks, I was pleasantly surprised. I had an eggplant pizza and burrata, and several cocktails, which is slowly becoming more popular in Paris. The cocktails were good – although a bit sweet for my taste and definitely pricey, but still despite that, it’s still a place I’d check out again and take out-of-towners.
