Born in 1844 and famous for such poems as la Bonne Chanson in 1870, Mr. Verlaine died in this house of alcoholism.

He spent two years in prison for confronting his lover at gun point. A tormented man, the home feels his presence and keeps his creativity alive.

The meal!  I chose the prix-fixe option at only 20 EUROS! :)

The decor and design honours the age and era of the end of the 18th century, while adding a kitchy new feel around other creatives.

Case in point!  Enjoy a cigarette! Sit back and relax.  The servers are brilliant and amongst some of the less lovely tourism spots on Rue Mouffetard, this little gem is worth the stop! http://www.lamaisondeverlaine.com
