More than romance and lights, Paris to me means fantastic restaurants and superb food. After living in a city with rather limited dining out options, I salivated over the idea of being able to waltz into practically any cafe or brasserie and feast on more than just the regular complement of sandwiches and soups.
We decided to splurge on our first evening out in Paris with dinner at Le Dome Cafe in Montparnasse.
Le Dome Cafe is the quintessential Paris brasserie at its turn-of-the-century, glamorous best.
All sumptuous reds and gleaming brass, Le Dome is a throwback to turn-of-the-century Paris, where leading intellectuals, artists and authors of the day would gather here for food and conversation.
