Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For tourists who want to avoid the well-known tourist spots and discover the locals' favourite addresses, and for residents who want to get to know their city even better, this handy little guide is eminently useful. Written by a true local, the book includes lists such as the 5 best vintage markets, the 5 best workplaces for freelancers and the 5 best concert venues. It features 500 addresses and facts that few people know, such as a restaurant where you can order a French meal until 3:30 in the morning, a small stationer's where the daylight streams in gloriously and you can find the most beautiful Japanese paper creations, or a little shop where gifts like embroidered serviettes are made to order. AUTHOR: Journalist Marie Farman lives and works in Paris. She knows everything there is to know about design and contemporary art - she manages the regular Design/Deco sections in magazines such as GQ, Figaro Madame, BE, BIBA, Culte(s) and Buybuy.com - and has her finger on the pulse for what's hot and happening in Paris. SELLING POINTS: A practical guide to discovering Paris' finest places, buildings, restaurant, shops, museums, neighbourhoods, parks, hotels and cafes 200 colour illustrations
