Restaurants in France
When you arrive in France, you will see several names for places to eat such as brasseries, eateries, bistros and restaurants. These names can be confusing for the first person to France even though they are not very different. However, there will be small differences that are very helpful for you to distinguish them.
Bars and restaurants
In France, the main difference between a diner and a restaurant is the degree of formality. A diner is usually casual, and it usually serves very simple, ordinary food. Restaurants are usually more formal, serving full menus. The difference between a restaurant and a bistro is not so great. At a small bistro, you can choose from a wider selection of food than in a diner.
Bistro (small bistro) and brasserie (brasserie)
What is the difference between bistro and brasserie? Coming here, you will be a bit confused because brasserie also serves simple and popular dishes like bistro. The only difference is that the brasserie sells alcohol and the bistro doesn’t (but now it’s hard to find a restaurant in France that doesn’t serve alcohol). So, in this era there is not a big difference between bistro and brasserie. However, both are still part of French culinary culture.
Because French food is so delicious, the French take their meals very seriously. The standard breakfast includes a classic croissant or pan au chocolat (chocolate croissant). If you travel to France, you should go to a boulangerie in the morning to enjoy these dishes.
You can have a quick lunch at a diner or a boulangerie if you’re short on time. But it’s not uncommon for the French to have a three-course, hour-long lunch at local bistros. Many bistros will offer reasonable lunch menus. If you really want to enjoy French food at a fancy restaurant, check to see if they offer a weekday lunch menu. Dinner is the most luxurious meal of the day and the most expensive when dining out.
