In 1900, the restaurant Chez Tonton opened, what is now the Perroquet Vert (Green Parrot). Many celebrities of the day patronised it, among them Princess Bibesco, who, in 1924 wrote a book. She was at Chez Tonton every day, her notebooks spread out in front of her, waiting for inspiration. And that is where she gave birth to her novel, "Le Perroquet Vert". Then in 1930, when it was a question of renaming the restaurant, the new name was obvious.
Numerous owners followed, and also artists such as Picasso, (Jean) Gabin, Yves Montand, Fernandel ... Those who were the most regular of them today still have a copper plaque attached behind their favourite seat. And then in 1994, after various owners: Jacques Cagna, La Marée ("the tide"), Michel Rostang, and Taillevent ("lug-sail"), Guillaume Via bought it when it was losing its fame and gave it back an unexpected new lease of life. The décor once thought nondescript has remained and become "charming", "representative", of its time. The curved bar, made of mahogany, dates back to the beginning of the (20th) century, as does some of the furniture, as well as the tiling and light fittings.
At the foot of the hill of Montmartre, the Place de Clichy overflows with attractions. Shops, cinemas, clubs, hotels and restaurants blend well with each other. In the charming and quiet rue Cavalotti, which leads from the Place, Le Perroquet Vert is a French gastronomic restaurant owned for the last six years by M. Via. The setting is stylish and rustic, like an old provincial inn. Mahogany and shining copper, tables covered with red and white checked cloths, pretty bunches of dried flowers, coloured glass lights, beams, an antique bar ... There is a fireplace with a wood fire in the winter, while the small terrace delights the clientèle in summer. Behind this sign with its very warm welcome lies a century of history.
