I live in the 14th district of Paris, down in the south, between Porte d’Orléans ans Denfert Rochereau, where you can see a beautiful copy of Bartholdi’s Belfort Lion, Bartholdi is the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty and this is a copy because the original is, of course, in Belfort, in France!
And when I come back from a walk with my family in the Montsouris Park (check out the article, or if I want to share a good moment with some neighbors-friends, I like to go and have a brunch (on Sundays only for € 18) or dinner in a bistrot called “Le Verre Siffleur”, located rue d’alésia, very close to the eponymous underground station.
This place is relatively new, about three years old, but it brought a sort of fresh air in the quarter, with the rehabilitation of a very affordable bistrot spirit. Besides, this concept has already been copied with the opening of a new, and not really good “Bouquet d’Alésia” just near the cinema Gaumon Alesia.
But “le Verre Siffleur” is never empty, and even if you come to eat Burgers, Salads or pastas, the place is so nice that it is recommended to book a table, otherwise you will be ‘obliged’ to have an “apero” at the wonderful bar, just in the center of the room.
Besides, it is also a French café with a small terrace, where you can have a coffee or a tea in the afternoon.
