Le Dôme de Villiers… A Must…

En… route“…

To our… rendez-vous…

We stop… at Villiers

Upon alighting… we glide up the airy “escalateur“… landing right in front of…

An… oasis…

LeDôme

The newly refurbished café brasserie… which used to be… dark… black… damp… has been… “like a miracle”… transformed into an old-world thematic masterpiece of “ancien Paris“… (old Paris)…  catapulted into present-day “über-modern”…

Brilliant…

Striped dark beige-on-ivory canvas awnings… with the latest Hi-tech apparatus for opening and closing… providing a cool atmosphere… original lighting fixtures “en haut“… round black wooden tables surrounded by Parisian rattan chairs… complete the “chic” ambience…

The service… impeccable…

The place… fabulous…

The gentleman responsible for this magical transformation is the one and only… Thierry Bourdoncle… the dynamic “propriétaire” of several of the most charming cafés and brasseries in Paris… 

 An enigmatic man… “discret“… understated… he was very present today overseeing his latest creation… launguidly moving in and out of his establishment “comme une panthère“…

As if that is not enough for one amazing entrepreneur… he recently acquired one of our regular favourites… Le Sénéquier in Saint-Tropez

We are lucky… to have him…

Café Dôme… is a place to “see and be seen”… “mais sans bling“… you won’t bump into “Sarko and Carla” here… Dieu merci

LeDôme

Isa find

It will delight you with an ambience of colonial nostalgia… yet it’s thoroughly modern…

Lovely in the morning… “pour un croissant et un express”… “et parfait pour déjeuner“… where the menu is fresh and crisp…

However…

Café Le Dôme

Is at its most… seductive… alluring… in the early hours of the evening with “un verre de vin rouge… avec un amoureux“…

Formidableirrésistible...

Incontournable“…

A…

Must…
