Where have you been lately?

Henry Simmons, Actor ("NYPD Blue"): Paris

March 30, 2003|LESLEE KOMAIKO

I went to Paris to see my family. I have a sister and a niece and nephew there. I went with my fiancee. One of my favorite spots is the Champs-Elysees. It embodies the richness of Paris, with all the expensive shops and cafes, and at the end, the Arc de Triomphe. You always have to plan a day for the Louvre. We [also] went to Versailles, which I love. Talk about history and extravagance. I had the fortune of going to the French Open, [where] I got to see Venus and Serena [Williams] play. It was incredible.

Discovery: A restaurant called Spoon [near] the Champs-Elysees. It was extremely chic. The atmosphere was great. And the service was excellent. But that's not what made it memorable. The food was incredible.
