Emily in Paris

Emily in Paris' Apartment

Situated steps away from the Paris Panthéon, one of the most delightful squares in the 5th Arrondissement of Paris is where Emily moves into her new “Chambre de Bonne” in the Latin Quarter on Place de l’Estrapade also known as Maison Moreau. This is the famous apartment block where Emily and Gabriel reside. It boasts of its very own sparkling fountain, bookstore, patisserie, delectable boulangerie, and a couple of restaurants dotted along the road. Filled with benches, it’s a perfect spot to sit and read a good book or simply stop and watch the world go by.

Gabriel's Restaurant

The restaurant where Emily’s hot downstairs neighbor Gabriel works really does exist and is only two doors down from La Boulangerie Moderne. Gabriel’s restaurant is called “Les Deux Compères” in the Emily in Paris series, which is an Italian gem called Terra Nerra located adjacent to Place de l’Estrapade. This Neapolitan restaurant is one of the most authentic Italian restaurants near the Sorbonne with a variety of pasta dishes and fresh seafood. But whatever your choice of order is, it will be served with a smile, and often, an Italian accent to boot.

La Boulangerie Moderne

If you want to follow Emily’s morning routine, you can pop on over to the real La Boulangerie Moderne, where Emily gets her daily bread, or shall we say, pain au chocolat. Her resident patisserie serves up a variety of humble French pastries where you can try great croissants, brioches and, bien sûr baguettes.

The Phanteon

The Panthéon is a monument in the 5th arrondissement of Paris located in the Latin Quarter, standing atop the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, at the center of the Place du Panthéon, which it is named after. It’s the final resting place for many of France’s most famous luminaries – Louis Braille, Marie Curie, Victor Hugo, and Voltaire among them.

The Seine River and Quai

Despite being always very busy at work, Emily always finds the time for a walk along the Seine or for some sightseeing. The banks of River Seine (quais de la Seine) is one of France’s three-longest rivers and has been the subject of many famous impressionist paintings.  Along the Seine are some of Paris’ most famous monuments and landmarks: the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre-Dame, the Conciergerie, the City Hall, the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand, and other architectural gems and waterfront developments.

In times gone by, the courtyard was named Cour de Fontaines — thanks to the presence of the fountain in the square.
