From No Worries Paris, page 134: “The tourist action peaks at Place du Tertre, a fairly large square made intimate by open-air restaurants and an artist’s bazaar that share its center. Some 140 licensed artists hawk portraits, kitsch landscapes, and silhouettes. Village shops and restaurants surround the place, which hums into the night. Chez la Mere Catherine, dates from 1793.”
