Venite ad me; vos qui somacho laboratis et ego restaurabo vos
From Larousse Gastronomique (1938) “The origins of restaurants , as we know them, is not very old. In the eighteenth century one could eat only in the inns… or at the shops of the traiteurs (eating house keepers) who could only sell whole pieces. In 1765 a man named Boulanger gave to his soups the name ‘Restaurants,’ i.e. Restoratives and inscribed on his sign “Boulanger sells magical restoratives.” “Restoratives” is derived from a medical term meaning “To give Stength or vigor.”
