After having a mid morning coffee at Café de Flore (great for people watching besides the tourist crowds), we walked to nearby restaurant La Société. It is right across the street from the Church of Saint Germain, and it is owned by the Costes family (yes, the brothers that opened a dozen or so of restaurants all over Paris).
It was designed by our hero Christian Liaigre, who created an amazing interior. Sort of contemporary french-asian with his signature touch of leather and mahogany furniture. A few sculptures give the place a cool artistic feeling.
It is a great place to be surrounded by beautiful people, of course, plus the food is good (maybe not your gourmet meal if you are into it...but still good). A relaxed lunch in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Paris (shrimp risotto was really good!).
