Lou Brundin’s favorite places in Paris

A small studio in Montmartre serves as neurologist Lou Brundin’s summer pad – a place to withdraw when she wants to take her mind off work. ‘I love Paris, and I’m fortunate to have a husband who does too,’ she says. Here are a few of her favorite places.

Chez Louisette

Chez Louisette

This cabaret café in the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen is always decked out in Christmas decorations. You’ll find a gruff, stocky woman, her husband, who calls her “the model,” and a cross-eyed waiter who gives everyone the wrong food. Its repertoire includes Edith Piaf numbers and other French hits.
