It is where husband and I got engaged.

We topped off the engagement day by finally stumbling across the cafe we had been searching for for days, Cafe de la Nouvelle Mairie. It is in the heart of the Latin Quarter and around the corner from the Pantheon... we had read so many rave reviews about it, we couldn't leave Paris without going there.
Cafe de la Nouvelle Mairie's produce is obtained straight from small rural growers rather than the traditional city markets. It wasn't touristy and the waiter spoke very little English. But with our very broken French (and some Italian and English in the mix), we managed to order the most amazing food and the most scrumptious house wine we had ever had (it tasted like raspberries!).

This is why it is #75 on the Life List.
