Paris is in full spring swing. We hear that the Mandarin Oriental, Paris has officially opened its courtyard garden for the season. We say this is a prime spot to take a light meal or sip a summery cocktail.

In the garden, guests can dine from menus from both Bar 8 and Camelia. Think Daikon-wrapped crab, shrimp and green tea glee, pickled radish, green asparagus, poached quail's egg and French imperial caviar. We hear the Semolina cream cake with stewed rhubarb and strawberry is also to die for. 

And for your cocktail? How about the Bellini Revisite, which is made up of Champagne, peach syrup and peach liquer mousse.
