The Latest: French candidate Macron revels at Paris eatery
The Latest on the first round of France’s presidential election (all times local):
Emmanuel Macron is celebrating his victory in France’s first-round presidential election at a Left Bank eatery frequented by Ernest Hemingway and other artistic dignitaries.
The choice to dine in La Rotonde in the Montparnasse neighborhood fits with Macron’s literary leanings — he quotes poets and philosophers in his campaign rallies.
While Macron insists he’s neither left nor right, La Rotonde has a “caviar left” feel. It has an anti-establishment flavor though too, thanks to the surrealist painters associated with its past.
