Le Dôme Café
Le Dôme Café
(French pronunciation: ​[lə dom]) or Café du Dôme is a restaurant in Montparnasse, Paris. From the beginning of the 1900s, it was renowned as an intellectual gathering place. It was widely known as "the Anglo-American café." Opening in 1898, it was the first such café in Montparnasse. It "created and disseminated gossip, and provided message exchanges and an 'over the table' market that dealt in artistic and literary futures."[1] It was frequented by the famous (and soon to be famous) painters, sculptors, writers, poets, models, art connoisseurs and dealers. Le Dôme later became the gathering place of the American literary colony and became a focal point for artists residing in Paris's Left Bank. A poor artist used to be able to get a Saucisse de Toulouse

and a plate of mashed potatoes for $1. Today, it is a top fish restaurant (the Michelin Guide
