French Restaurant
“Visiting Paris without going to Louisette is missing out on one of the most authentic spots of the capital. The naturalness of the characters that inhabit the places is unique. Welcome to Chez Louisette, legendary bar-restaurant located in the heart of the Marché aux Puces (8 min walk). When you pass it, you cannot help but take a look, attracted to melodies with the feel of old Paris. Many famous people went there: Gainsbourg, Simone Signoret, Sharon Stone, Madonna and even ... "she is beautiful! She had a beautiful dress, she said, 'Manuela I love you, what do you sing well!'. Really nice and not at all pretentious. " If even Madonna did not forget to leave a nice note to Manuela, it is because this little lady is an institution there! Manuela sings tirelessly for over 40 years the Edith Piaf repertoire and many other french classic "chansons" to the sound of accordéon, and guitare. Chez Louisette is open three days a week, same days the Flea Market is open : sat.8:30 - 18:30 sun.8:30 - 18:30 mon.8:30 - 18:30”
