"The best place in the world to have dinner on a Tuesday night is Paris." So claims Daniel Young, former restaurant reviewer for the New York Daily News and author of "The Bistros, Brasseries, and Wine Bars of Paris: Everyday Recipes from the Real Paris". What is the difference between a Bistro and a Brasserie? riginally Bistros were wine bars catering to working class men. Over time the Bistros started offering some food to go with wine - usually a hearty stew. Brasseries were beer halls, originating in the Alsace region of France near the German Border. Daniel Young's book not only describes the wonderful qualities of some of Paris' most famous Bistros and Brasseries but also includes some wonderful recipes (Francis can't wait to make the chicken poached in cream!).
