July 2010 - A Visit to an Herb Shop

Herboristerie de la Place ClichyIn this month's Paris Insights we take a tour of the oldest herb shop in Europe. Owned and operated by Jean-Pierre Raveneau, he talks about medicinal herbs and their place in modern medicine.

We dined at Le Cotte-Rôti, an unusually decorated restaurant located in the 12th arrondissement. Owner and chef Nicolas Michel told us that he plans to remodel his bistrot this August, but, happily, he will continue to serve the same great cuisine when he reopens in September! Read our review in this month's Le Bon Goût.
