I want to own a Bistro!
I really want to own a bistro someday, but first, where does that word come from.
After all, I should know what I’m getting myself into.
The most plausible explanation is that in 1814 during the Russian occupation of Paris, the Russians called the small, quick restaurants they saw – быстро – or bystro which means ‘quickly in PYCCKII 🙂 Another possible idea is that the small restaurants were known for selling “bistrouille” a coffee liqueur.
Either way, I like both answers – now for the menu! Happy Saturday everyone!
