Paris Restaurants: Café Trama

I have a favorite café. It is not really a café; it is a restaurant called Café Trama, and it is right across the street from the studio where I spend my days writing. It only opened a few months ago, and it […]

Le Schmuck

This Paris restaurant has glam, beauty and all the makings for a fun girls’ night out. While the name Le Schmuck may not conjure images of beautiful people, believe me, they’re here.
