Thought you might enjoy these photos
of the Restaurant Laperouse on the banks of the Seine.
I adore the exquisite old paintings found on ancient buildings in Paris,
frequently on the sides of what used to be,
and sometimes still are, boulangeries.
Founded in 1766, the restaurant and bar Laperouse
sit in an old, restored Parisian mansion along the quai
with a view of the Seine.
I'll have my kir in a window seat, thank you very much.
Located at 51, Quai des Grands Augustins in the 6th,
see more photos and a glimpse of the ethereal interior at Laperouse Restaurant.
"Boire sans soif et faire l'amour en tout temps, Madame, il n'y a que ca qui nous distingue des autres betes." ~Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais
('Drinking without being thirsty
and making love at any time, Madame,
there is nothing else that distinguishes us from the other animals.')
