Additional Information

English: NEW ENGLISH RESTAURANTS IN PARIS. This is really not too expensive... for two francs and 25 centimes they give you a bottle of beer, turtle soup, a roast beef with potatoes, a slice of veal, currant jelly and a colic.

Given the reputation of English cuisine (from a French perspective), a French restaurant in England might seem more likely than the other way around. Daumier suggests that diners were getting more than they bargained for at Paris’ new English restaurants—but not in a good way.
