Guerrilla party in the kitchen of the future l’Eclaireur’s restaurant hosted by Rafael Jimenez of and Carlos Puig

Dear Shaded Viewers,


Secret location parties are all the rage in Paris these days but this was the first one that I attended in the kitchen of the soon to be opened l’Eclaireur restaurant around the corner from le Crillon. By appointment of Alexandra Senes, a few of Alex’s friends have taken over Tuesday and Friday nights when someone different hosts their friends or friends of friends and enjoy a drink in the kitchen.


The hosts tonight were Carlos and Rafael.
