  • Restaurants became commonplace in French after the French Revolution broke up catering guilds and forced the aristocracy to flee, leaving a retinue of servants with the skills to cook excellent food: while at the same time numerous provincials arrived in Paris with no family to cook for them. Restaurants were the means by which these two could be brought together and the French tradition of dining out was born.
