Join artist John Donohue as he retraces his steps in NYC and Paris and shares tips about immersing oneself in both cities.

In 2017, the self-taught, Brooklyn-based artist John Donohue started drawing restaurants across the five boroughs. After the launch of his first book, 2019’s “All the Restaurants in New York,” he knew where he had to head next–Paris. Donohue finds drawing very therapeutic, and that it restores his sense of well being, much like a good meal does for others. The result was “A Table in Paris,” which came out earlier this year and collects more than a hundred drawings of fabled eateries in the City of Light.

  • Explore the visual contrasts between New York and Paris streets
  • Learn about how the artist’s work at home differs from when abroad.
  • Learn the nuances that separate a Bistro from a Brasserie (as well as from a Bullion and a Cave a Manger)
  • How to save on fine dining
  • How drawing reduces stress and increases executive function

About John Donohue:

In 2017, the self-taught, Brooklyn-based artist John Donohue (www.alltherestaurants.com) started drawing restaurants across the five boroughs. After the launch of his first book, 2019’s “All the Restaurants in New York,” he knew where he had to head next–Paris. French food has long been nearly synonymous with fine dining since it was invented and the word “restaurant” is even French in origin, coming from restaurer, which means “to restore.” Donohue finds drawing very therapeutic, and that it restores his sense of well being, much like a good meal does for others. The result was “A Table in Paris,” which came out earlier this year and collects more than a hundred drawings of fabled eateries in the City of Light.
