Provocative? Yes! True? Also, yes! And if you were in need of an extremely unique and somewhat controversial reason to take a vacation, this is trip for you. Recently, a new restaurant in Paris opened it’s doors where diners are required to eat in the nude. You heard it here first. Upon further research, this is NOT the first restaurant offering this unique (and maybe a little chilly?) dining option. However, it’s Paris, so it just makes sense. Therefore, I have detailed a lovely itinerary (listed below) where you and your special someone can take a trip with at least one activity you WON’T want to have any pictures from. Read more about the new restaurant here.
First, you’ll be spending two nights in New York City, my hometown and one of the greatest cities in the world. The two nights include overnight accommodations at one of my favorite hotels: The Barclay Intercontinental Hotel. You’ll be seeing the wildly successful off Broadway production of “Naked Boys Singing” and dining at a personal favorite restaurant of mine...The Palm.
Next, you’re on your way to Paris! Five nights in arguably the most romantic city on the planet. Yes, you’ll be taking a short sightseeing tour to see the highlights and visiting that famous lady at The Louvre Museum.
Sound too good to be true? Nope. I’ve estimated the costs for a two person trip (departing from New York) on a seven night vacation in May 2018.
Pricing is for two people
New York (2 Nights) - Paris (5 Nights)
May 1-10, 2018
Estimated rates researched in December 2017
Total: $5,750 (all listed)
Two Nights at the Barclay Intercontinental Hotel on E. 48th Street in New York City - $400.00
Two Tickets to “Naked Boys Singing!” (Off Broadway) - $200.00
Dinner for Two at The Palm NYC - $150.00
Round-Trip Airfare for Two from NYC to Paris on Air France (business class) - $3,000.00
Five Nights at The Opera Cadet Hotel Paris - $1,400.00
Two Tickets to The Louvre - $50.00
Paris One Day Sightseeing Tour: $400.00
Dinner in the Buff for Two (reservations required) at O’naturel Paris - $150.00
Of course I’m having a little fun here, but as you can see, a Paris trip (with our without the naked dinner) may just be exactly what you and your special someone need in 2018.
I am on a mission to get you traveling more often. As the host of the Emmy award- winning, nationally syndicated television television for PBS and the Create channel, "Beyond Your Backyard," I travel (on average) 25 weeks per year. I am very grateful for the opportunity to meet cool people, experience new places, eat delicious food and work with the best production crew in the world. Hopefully, through this blog, you will join me on my travels and be reminded just how exciting it is to be alive!
