Le Dome

Further to our tour of Hemingway's Paris, our next stop is Le Dome, now a fish restaurant, but in Hemingway's time a more pedestrian cafe.

After arriving in Paris in December 1921, Ernst Hemingway wrote his early mentor, Sherwood Anderson:
Well here we are. And we sit outside the Dome Cafe, opposite the Rotunde that's being redecorated, warmed up against one of those charcoal braziers and it's so damned cold outside and the brazier makes it so warm and we drink rum punch, hot, and the rhum enters into us like the Holy Spirit.
