As the story goes, the world’s first restaurant opened in Paris, in 1765. Mr. Boulanger … (a soup salesman, turned tavern keeper) opened its doors with a single-item on the menu – sheep’s feet simmered in white sauce!
Unlike other food-type businesses operating at the time, such as taverns (alcohol) and cafes (coffee) … his business focused on food. Naturally, the idea of ‘going out to eat’ was a foreign notion – as people had always eaten meals at home.
Here’s the interesting part; Boulanger claimed his special dish would restore people’s health.
The French word for restore happens to be, restaurer. So, you can see where the word restaurant originated.
By the way … a local food union proceeded to sue Boulanger for infringing on their right to sell cooked food.
The union lost … and the years that followed saw restaurants popping up … all across the country.
