"La Coupole" on the Boluevard Montparnasse is one of the "monuments
historiques" of Paris, one of the must of Paris left bank. It must have been
built sometime in late twenties. I used to love its stark interiors and its
mixed clientel, clochards, artists and businessmen at long tables.
Not too mention all the pillars. And the cuisine. By the way, I believe that
it opened in the 30's, not the 20's, but either way, Eliot would have had the
opportunity to partake of its offerings.
