Passy / La Muette

This quarter is where many of Paris’ 1%-ers live. Remember The Spice Girls? Well, here it’s all Posh, but no Spice. The spiciest thing you’ll find in Passy are some pseudo-trendy restaurants where they make you wait 40 minutes for a sidewalk table for no apparent reason or more well-groomed dogs (sporting Hermès leashes) per square yard than at an international dog show. Passy does have some (vanilla) energy, a welcome contrast to the zombie-quiet, bored-bourgeois vibe found elsewhere in the Seizième.
