There aren’t many more evocative streets than the Champs-Élysées. The name itself is a giveaway, ‘the Elysian Fields’ being a bold name to give to any street, no matter how impressive. Originally a bunch of fields and kitchen gardens, it was in 1667 that landscape architect and gardner to King Louis XIV, André Le Nôtre, set out the promenade in a more ordered fashion. Over the years, the Champs-Élysées grew to become one of the most fashionable and famous streets in the world, surviving revolution, war and the throng of tourists that pound its historic pavements every day. An iconic French brasserie at the corner of the Champs-Élysées and Avenue George VStraddling the corner of the Champs-Élysées and Avenue George V is Le Fouquet’s. The most famous of the area’s once-common Belle Époque bistros, Fouquet’s is the archetype for French brasseries. Opened in 1899 by Louis Fouquet, it quickly became a … [Read more...] about One night at Le Fouquet’s in Paris

Photo: Restaurant Les Tilleuls Fifteen people were injured when a gas canister exploded at a crowded Geneva restaurant Saturday, blowing out windows and spraying diners with shards of glass, rescue workers said. The explosion at Italian restaurant Les Tilleuls near the centre of the Swiss city happened in the middle of the lunchtime rush, with the alarm going off at 1.18pm, rescue services captain Frederic Jaques told AFP.

"Est-ce que je peux avoir un 'doggy-bag" s'il vous plait? This is a question many may soon not be embarrassed to ask in a French restaurant. That's because a new amendment adopted by the National Assembly's committee of sustainable development will require all restaurants in France to provide containers for their customers to take away unfinished food. "The goal is to generalise a practise that already exists, and to halve the amount of food waste by 2025," according to the MPs who drafted the amendment. The bill points out that food waste in restaurants is five times greater than at home, which is equivalent to one quarter of a meal. The amendment must still be given the green light by the parliament's economy committee after which it will be put to a vote by MPs later in the spring. Bringing doggy-bags into French culture, in a country which takes particular pride in the art of eating, in and out, may not be easy. Critics believe they are just not 'French'.
