Restaurants in my city (Paris, France)

  • Retro Bottega: It’s a very intimate Italian restaurant with just four tables. When you visit, the menu is explained in full by a waiter of Italian heritage. Everything here is a pure delight.
  • Breizh Café Batignolles: The best galette bretonne (a French dish similar to a pancake, made with buckwheat flour with a savory filling) in all of Paris, with authentic and delicious ingredients.
  • Fromagerie Lasnier: It’s difficult to leave here with only a few cheeses because everything is so delicious and they allow you to taste.

Post-COVID Travel Destinations

  • El Salvador: I had plans to visit last March, during which time I planned to discover the Central American country and visit Harry and Claudia Washington—two incredible designers from the Bernhardt Design family. 
  • Iceland: For the country’s feeling of purity and the grandeur of the landscapes—the wilderness and the pure lines sculpted by nature everywhere your eyes land.
  • New York: I first visited New York in May 2016 when I presented the Mellow sofa with Bernhardt Design at ICFF. I look forward to returning to New York to enjoy ICFF and all the other design-related events.

Dream Purchase

  • I’m starting to dream of a floating house, specifically a sailboat. The closures of this past year have pushed me to look for new horizons and undiscovered places.
  • Until the sailboat, I would like to learn to Kitesurf as an opportunity to begin taking advantage of the wind.
