Three years ago, we stopped by Ohinéné on the advice of a friend who lives in the neighborhood where this restaurant is located. Since then, we have returned whenever we have the desire for fine African cuisine.

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
The year 1674 was a very good one for the young king Louis XIV. Victorious in battle on the Rhine and in Franche-Comté, at the age of 30 he was hailed as Ludovico Magno, Louis the Great. In his honor, the Prevost of merchants and the magistrates of Paris hired architect Nicolas-Francois Blondel to design a triumphal arch at the former site of the medieval ramparts, which had become the new boundaries of Paris. Etienne Le Hongre's fine low-relief sculpture features a duo of winged cherubs unfurling a finely chiseled drawing of a warship on a tasseled standard flag.
