You could say that Caviar Kaspia is having a revival. This 8th arrondissement sturgeon restaurant by the Catholic Madeleine Church has been attracting a new wave of diners since word got out that it is one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favourite eating spots. As you can imagine, it is now packed with “friends of the house of Chanel” from the full spectrum of creative disciplines, which make a nice contrast to the spot’s loyal, moneyed clientele who can’t get enough of its shots of vodka and jacket potatoes served with the world’s finest caviar and a dollop of sour cream. This is people-watching on another level but also makes for a fun date night.
In addition to the Champs-Élysées and Arc de Triomphe, the 8th arrondissement houses Paris’ famous shopping Golden Triangle, which includes Avenue George V, Rue François 1er and Avenue Montaigne. However, if your ideal day out doesn’t include shopping this exclusive area, there are plenty of places to watch the world go by, such as Parisian institution L’Avenue on Avenue Montaigne – just down the street from Céline.
