I went to dine this evening in an estaminet in the Faubourg St. Antoine.
We were billeted at an estaminet that had copped it pretty thick.
Outside an estaminet was a horse and cart partly across the road, and just sufficiently blocking it.
Just behind and in rear was an estaminet run by two French girls.
An estaminet has jumped up like a weed beside the ruins but it has little trade.
One of these houses was untenanted when we were there, and the other was an estaminet.
A woman showed me on an estaminet floor the blood-stains of her own baby butchered before her eyes.
The man had been drinking last night at the estaminet up there.
Major Fraser, though he never dined there, spent an hour or two daily in the estaminet du Divan to read the papers.
It appeared that he had gone into the estaminet opposite with four friends.
1814, from French, "a café in which smoking is allowed" (17c.), of unknown origin; some suggest a connection to French estamine, a type of open woolen fabric used for making sieves, etc., from Latin stamineus "made of thread." Or from Walloon stamen "post to which a cow is tied at a feeding trough," from Proto-Germanic *stamniz (see stem (n.)).
