About this painting:
Unique Charm of restaurants in Paris
Leonid Afremov’s canvas of a coffee shop
Leonid Afremov has traveled all over Europe. His favorite cities are Copenhagen, Venice, Amsterdam, and of course Paris. It seems to be impossible not to fall in love in one of the most romantic cities in the world! You can sit in one of many exquisite restaurants or little cozy cafes, read a book with a cup of freshly-made espresso, talk to your friends or family, and even paint! Their hospitability is impressive and their service is top class! Seems like some people come back to Paris not only to visit all of its known worldwide landmarks, but also to start their day with a freshly-baked croissant and a cup of coffee or French hot chocolate. This wonderful piece is called Espresso-Paris and it depicts a charming little coffee shop somewhere in France. Let’s find out why people love such places in Paris.
Why do people love Parisian restaurants and cafes?
Parisian restaurants and cafes have some special features that make them unique and make people fall in love with them. They add some original spirit to your visit of this gorgeous city, they form its atmosphere! Let’s see what they are:
- You automatically get carafe or water and they are free.
It seems to be such a little thing but it means so much to people. A pitcher of free water is always served no matter if you are going to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. It makes people feel welcome and loved.
- Don’t refuse an aperitif.
A server will certainly ask you if you would like an aperitif. Don’t refuse it as it will make the time while you are waiting for food much more pleasant. If you happen to be invited to a dinner at a French home, aperitifs are a very important part of it!
- Would you like to eat or drink?
When a hostess meets you at the door and ask this one question it might seem to irrelevant to you at that moment; however, it is very important. The reason is there are fully served tables for people who come to have a proper meal and tables for people who stopped by to just have a couple of drinks and don’t need all those plates, forks and spoons on their tables.
- Little tables placed close to one another.
Oh those little tables… they are probably the part that makes French cafes or restaurants so unique. They create a very intimate atmosphere (it is very comfortable to kiss your partner if you just lean over the table a little bit). Even though they are crowded they make you feel very close to whomever you are with and you stopped noticing people around and they also don’t pay any attention to you.
