Making A Restaurant, Part 1

One of the first questions that come to mind when we travel is, 'Where should we eat?' Deciding on the right restaurant becomes an essential part of our travel plans and it's surprising to realize that just about everything that makes up a modern restaurant --- street floor access, a receptionist, seating, the wait staff, the kitchen in the back, and a written invoice --- was developed in Paris during a 50-year period starting in 1765. In this program, Burt travels around and looks at how these basic elements come together these days, when someone decides to open a restaurant.
