Wanderlust – a name every Parisian has surely heard over the past year, and perhaps even has memories associated with it.  That would come as no surprise!  Since our first blog post in June, 2012 about the freshly opened doors of Wanderlust, it has blossomed into one of the hottest commodities in the night life, party throwing, artist collaboration and event space scenes.  And that’s just the half of it! For starters, the restaurant is a perfect example of the eclectic, global  approach ringing through every strand of Wanderlust’s being.  Four guest chefs are invited every......
