Le Bon Marché

The real Parisian distinction is Le Bon Marché. It is the only ‘islet’ Parisians from the Seine left and right bank manage to reach agreement.

You are aware that the residents of Paris left and right bank are engaged in an ideological tug of war to determine which bank is the best. It is a matter of pride. A schoolyard war, certainly, but a war you have to choose your side. However, in this struggle, the inhabitants of the right bank are ready to make a single concession: to admit that Le Bon Marché is much better than Les Galeries Lafayette and Printemps Haussmann combined. I can tell you that hearing a right bank resident announce that the best department store in the capital is located left bank is worth all the Tripadvisor ratings of the world.
