With pitch-perfect taste, endless curiosity and a love of beauty in any form, who better to turn to than Nina Ricci designer Peter Copping to find out the most interesting spots in New York and Paris right now?
147 Mercer Street
I always stay at the Mercer when in New York. I love the ambience; the staff and service are great. Their granola with berries is the best in town.
113 Thompson Street
I love their sake with gold leaf—so decadent.
Tea & Sympathy
108 Greenwich Avenue
I am always happy to have some British cooking—and where better than in New York!!
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
1000 Fifth Avenue
I love to visit the Met. I let myself get completely lost and go with no set agenda… Although I always seem to end up in the 18th century porcelain room!!
1 Crosby Street
An overdose of beautiful objects in a beautiful setting. I love it.
Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature
62 rue des Archives 75003
Where else can you see portraits of Louis XIV’s dogs by Desportes next to a Jeff Koons puppy!?
Rose Bakery (for breakfast)
46 rue des Martyrs 75009
Their scrambled egg and cheese scone is always a good start to the day.
Tch’a (for lunch)
6 rue Pont de Lodi 75006
I never knew there were so many ways to cook tofu before I went to Tch’a, and their list of teas is endless.
Spring (for dinner)
The menu is determined by what the chef finds at the market, and there is no choice! This means you eat things you would never normally choose—but it is always delicious.
7 rond-point des Champs-Élysées
There is always something interesting happening at Artcurial whether it be an auction, interior installation or their great bookshop… and it’s only a two-minute walk from the Ricci office.
Rambert Rigaud, Fleuriste en Herbe
+ 336 16 94 42 53
After working in fashion for the last 15 years, Rigaud is the new name to watch out for in Parisian florists. His bouquets are beautiful mixes in sumptuous colours. Sur rendez-vous (by appointment) and very exclusive.
Cinéma Mac Mahon
5 avenue Mac-Mahon 75017
A great place to catch old favourites on the big screen.
