Dinner for Two



                         One of the things I love most about living in Paris is the chance to dine
                           in authentic cafés and brasseries.

     We dined here last evening and nearly had the entire place to ourselves. The cold and snow kept everyone home.
 We bundled up, braved the elements and enjoyed it all immensely.



           The comfy banquettes and this lovely handpainted portrait complete with
 swirls and fleurs encouraged us to linger long over our meal.



 Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!
