we must carry it with us or we find it not

La Belle Ėpoque .........


 
"Gallopin Brasserie" is a delightful Belle - Ėpoque restaurant
which has retained the charm and ambiance of Paris's most glorious era.
 
Painted glass roof -  original brass and mahogany fittings
and a wonderful clientele of journalists and Parisienne ladies
who like to lunch in style.
 
Can you see the waiter in the background with his
elegant pink vest !!! oh so classy.
 
I discreetly snapped this photo between foie-gras and crème brulée

Dianne,
Whenever I need a moment of quiet reflection or time to relive a visit to France, I look at your current post, then get swept away looking through your collection of "All Things French". Please continue to share with all of us your photos that capture the essence of all things French.

Hi Dianne! Hope you are having a superb summer! I'll check thisnext October...
Sorry for the absence, but 2013 has been even worse than 2012... Anyhow, enjoy the blues of Grenada, and have a great vacation, if you can manage!!
All the best!
