Our Restaurant of the Month
Photograph by Discover Paris!
With a façade so nondescript that it doesn’t even inspire a glance as one passes by, and a location so far off the beaten tourist track that one has to make a special effort to get there, what does Esens’All have going for it?

Angel of the Month
Photograph by Rosemary Flannery
Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
Floating on elegant wings as drapery drifts around him, a young boy angel waves a laurel branch and carries a carved antique bust topped with an Ionic capital. The work, realized in 1881, is entitled "Sculpture Decorative" and is located at 4, rue Chartreux, a quiet street near the Luxembourg Garden. Its creator, who lived in this apartment building, was Louis Villeminot, one of the finest ornamental sculptors of his era. (Metro: Notre-Dame-des-Champs)
What a joy it must have been for him to return home each day and see his own beautiful sculpture here!
