Recs for a good place to buy spirits in Paris

Thanks for the recs. I did hit up Caves Auge. Great selection, although premium pricing. I was able to find a '73 Armangnac, which I was searching for though.

Recs for a good place to buy spirits in Paris

I'm looking for a good place to buy local, non exported booze in Central Paris. Pastis, Armagnac, etc. I figured folks on here would have an opinion as to what and where.

I'm staying in the 1st but can jump on the Metro.

Many thanks for the tips!

Dinner after drinks at Cure?

Thanks for the tips. Yes, I wasn't sure what the 'hood was like, and yes it would be after dark. I'm not sure it is worth the trip to Cure, even though the drinks are something I'd like to check out.

It seems a bit off the beaten path, which isn't entirely a bad thing, but we were looking for something a bit nicer for dinner. Of course, we may just hop in a cab from Cure to a white tablecloth restaurant closer to St. Charles.

Any Coolinary reports? Good or bad?

Wife and I will be in NO for a few nights midweek later this month. I noticed y'all have an event similar to our restaurant week here in the DC area going on. We had a few great meals in Miami last year in August during their take on this. Any recs for a can't miss deal in/near FQ/CBD? Prefer more local than tourist but most importantly want good food, cocktails and wine!

Dinner after drinks at Cure?

My wife and I will be in NO for a couple of nights midweek this month. I'd like to venture up to Cure for some cocktails. Is it doable via trolley car? Also, what restaurants around there would be good for a nice dinner? Would prefer to walk from Cure, once again, if possible.

Bar Boulud this Sat. - Dress code

Thanks! Jeans it will be but I'll probably bring along a blazer unless it is dreadfully hot.

Bar Boulud this Sat. - Dress code

Up from DC for weekend, going to Bar Boulud with another couple for dinner. They have never been there so can't give us the "appropriate" attire for a Sat. night. Can a guy wear nice jeans and button down? Blazer? Or slacks it is without the blazer?

Also, anyone been to Clo wine bar in the same area? How busy is it on a Sat night?
