MIX CHICKEN AND BEEF
A Short History of a Long Tradition
According to legend, in 1765 the first "restaurant" was opened on the rue des Poulies by a Parisian named Monsieur Boulanger. He served mostly bouillons restaurants. The French word restaurants that described Boulanger's broths is from the Latin restaurare, which means "to renew." Hmmm ... we see a trend here!
The sign over his door read: "Boulanger provides divine sustenance" and he continued with a sense of humor emphasizing in Latin: "Venite ad me omnes qui stomacho laboratis et ego vas restaurabo."
In English, this translates as "Come to me all who suffer from pain of the stomach and I will restore you" - a pun reflecting the restorative powers of his broths and Jesus's invitation in Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
So, Chef Olivier in leaving his long career in restaurants to create Good Bones has, it seems, unwittingly returned to the roots of his profession - a restaurant. An irony that is not lost on him! So really we're doing nothing new here. What's old is new again and we are simply making the finest bone broths for you to enjoy.
To your health!
