When we first read about Caminito Cabaret, we thought that this would be a perfect restaurant for a dining adventure: inexpensive house-made meals served in a funky café on the far side of town.

Angel of the Month

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris

November trees are mostly bereft of foliage, yet a few retain their beautiful rusty-colored leaves.  High up on a frieze decorating the former Parisian townhouse of Count James-Alexandre de Pourtalès are unusual foliated angels designed by architect Felix Duban.  Duban had studied Etruscan tombs, vases, urns, and columns in Tuscany, and applied this inspiration to his "fantasies architecturales." The arabesque, a decorative pattern of entwining plants and curvilinear shapes, derives from the work of Muslim artisans in the first millennium, and was revived during the Italian Renaissance. 

Hôtel de Pourtalès , 7 rue Tronchet, 8th arrondissement (Métro: Madeleine)
