France – Paris
Opened in 2022 by Amélie and Edward Touret, Meshuga, a new Parisian street food spot, offers cuisine with an American-Heddish accent. Caterer Florence Kahn’s Reuben Sandwich with pastrami, Grilled Cheese with rye and Lobster Roll with Espelette pepper brightens guests’ taste buds from the very first bite.
The minimalist Bauhaus-style storefront plunges us instantly into 1960s California. This no-holds-barred restaurant is similar to a New York deli. For the interior, the owners called on the creativity of designer and art director Mathilde Vallée. Powder-pink, concrete stools are inlaid into the floor for seating. The same goes for the counter. On the walls and ceiling, the many amber mirrors bring a vintage aesthetic to the place. Meshuga is an invitation to travel, not far from the Luxembourg Gardens. So what are you waiting for?
