"A Restaurant Tip:Non-French..." Dining & Drinking Tip by DesertRat

Dining & Drinking, Paris: 93 reviews and 101 photos

<b>A Restaurant Tip:</b>
Non-French speaking patrons of French -- and especially Parisian -- restaurants need to be careful of the term 'entrée.' It means 'entrance', or maybe more accurately, 'entered', and applies to 'starters.' Unfortunately, my French is quite limited. Anyway, it does not mean 'main course' as it is interpreted in the U.S. This bit of info may well save you a few patronizing 'sniffs' from waiters.
