7. Le Jules Verne

Paris means Eiffel Tower in a way, right? So it is not shocking that the producers of season 3 decided to start the season with it. Although falling from the tower would not be pleasant, having dinner at a Michelin Starred restaurant on the 2nd floor would. This is where Emily is trying to deal with McDonald’s before her ex-boss figure out that she is trying to work at two jobs simultaneously! The restaurant is named after the French science fiction writer Jules Verne and offers panoramic views of the city. Every dish is a true culinary masterpiece, from succulent seafood to tender meats and perfectly cooked vegetables. The atmosphere is elegant and sophisticated, making it a perfect choice for a special occasion or a romantic date.

8. Tuileries Garden

When Emily was unemployed, she took her time as a Paris tourist. This is the place she spent most of her time with Mindy and Alfie- mainly in the Ferris Wheel ;). Located in the heart of Paris, the Tuileries Garden is a beautiful public park that is perfect for a leisurely stroll or a picnic on a sunny day- like Emily also did. The garden is also home to a number of interesting landmarks, including the Orangerie Museum, which houses a collection of Impressionist paintings, and the famous glass pyramid of the Louvre Museum.

9. L’Esprit de Luberon

A scene from the L’Esprit de Luberon restaurant was filmed at Clover Gordes. The Provence restaurant, a component of the Airelles Gordes hotel, has a view of the Luberon valley’s lavender fields and olive groves. Chef Jean-François Piège is the driving force behind it. He created a cuisine highlighting regional foods and the skill of cooking over embers. According to a press release, the actors and crew frequented the restaurant since they liked the meal so much.

10. La Nouvelle Eve

This is the famous jazz club Mindy took the stage in season 3. Also, I still can not forget Emily’s glitter dress when she walked in with Alfie. The Dua Lipa- Don’t Start Now performance of Mindy with that suit was also mindblowing, right? La Nouvelle Eve- one of Paris’s oldest revue theatres. The theatre is almost a century old and is located in the city’s ninth arrondissement near the slopes of Montmartre. The interior’s dark blue velvet-covered walls, sparkling star-studded ceiling, and Corinthian-style stage with a rainbow runway never fail to wow. Visitors can stop by to see a dinner production or an evening performance.
