To fight against rain and wind, we are offering you cultural activities this week. Towards Bercy Village to follow the Parisian adventures of Elyx, unless you prefer to dip in the universe of star duo Le Riche-Costa, or to follow the path designed by Maurice Renoma in the Marais. Before preparing for a unique concert of Charles X at the Paris Peninsula. We also invite you to dive in the heart of Korean cuisine, hunt antique furniture and design objects at Drouot, refuel with exceptional groceries before making a break in the first after-skiing station in the capital. Happy Paris!
The artist YAK, well known by Instagrammers for his little character he draws in a notebook and then inserts into landscapes, is exhibited at Bercy Village. Elyx, virtual ambassador of the COP 21, leads visitors through his discovery of the capital and his adventures staggered through thirty large-format photographs. As many snapshots of Parisian life as staging filled with humor, positive thoughts and good humor.
Until the 29th of May. B.D. www.bercyvillage.com

He looks back on his artistic path and presents Back to basics, a path that illustrates his passion for pictures and honors the neighborhood where he grew up. Almost a quarter century of photographs exhibited in a retrospective of over hundred works in seven emblematic places of the Marais.

Married to a Korean, Laurent Meuret is an inspired restaurant chef and the Bekseju Village offers a real dive in the heart of Korean soul. Here, refined atmosphere and minimalist decor are the setting for authentic cuisine – the whole kitchen team is Korean – tasty and (sometimes strongly) spicy. All the gastronomy classics are here, minute-made. They go perfectly with the superb bekseju collection, the iconic Korean beverage made from fermented rice wine and complemented with herbs. Either we prefer the small tables by the window or the large guest table, service is charming and the host is attentive to every need of its customers. A real nice place to escape. B.D.
