Trying to find a half-decent restaurant anywhere near one of the main tourist sites in Paris is a challenge worthy of a sleuth. At the foot of the Pompidou Centre, you find a labyrinth of small street with cheap crepe stands, English-speaking bars and nondescript café-brasseries. You may well also have exhausted your patience for the snooty service at Georges – the top-floor restaurant in the iconic art gallery.

Fortunately, MG Road is right on hand for exactly these moments. It’s a contemporary Indian restaurant which appeals to both Marais hipsters and food lovers equally.

With its sleek white interior and contrasting dark chairs, it almost looks too trendy to be any good… but fortunately my fears were proved to be ill-founded.

The food is fresh, well executed, delicately spiced and therefore delicious. Worth mentionning that the 20€ two-course menu at lunch time is very good value.

Similar problem in the Saint Germain area? Head to sister-restaurant Desi Road, on rue Dauphine, where the emphasis is on thalis, generous platters of tasty food to be shared. Perfect for friends and romancing.

“Vintage 2017 Report” Or “How To Protect Against Frost”

It’s becoming an all-too-familiar scenario: a beautiful springtime with plenty of warm sunshine but followed by a sudden dip and freezing temperatures. A cold winter does marvels for the vineyard but once bud-burst has taken place, a cold snap can have catastrophic results. You may remember that I wrote about this already in 2016. Vintage 2016: […]
