Anthony Bourdain’s tip: “The most important thing to do the instant you arrive in Paris is stop, find some place inviting, and slip comfortably into the Parisian pace of life.” After having his “French breakfast” at Le Royal, he then proceeded to L’ Hotel, which he described as a “very discreet joint known for being a love shack to the tragically hip for ages”. He mentioned it was where Oscar Wilde died in 1900 in Room 16, the same room he stayed in on this episode.
