Our Restaurant of the Month

Niébé is a Wolof word that means black-eyed pea. A new Afro-Brazilian restaurant that bears its name stands just off the busy boulevard du Montparnasse in the heart of the vibrant Montparnasse quarter.

Angel of the Month

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
Even angels can seem like valentines. . .Here an adorable couple of stone cherubs appear to waft through the air, gingerly lifting a shield half their size bearing the coat-of-arms of Brittany. The crown above it, decorated with fleur-de-lis, references the province’s former ties to the monarchy. Sculptors Hiolle and Garraud won the 1914 commission for ornamental angels to decorate balcony alcoves of architect C. M. Josso in 1914, an interesting period in French architecture when buildings were ’signed’ by their designers.
Northwest corner of rue de Bretagne and rue de Saintonge, 3rd arrondissement (Metro: Filles du Calvaire)
