Learn your French tastefully at Louis Le Francais
All right, boys and girls, it's time for our French lesson! First, let's review: "Bonjour" ... "Merci!" ... "S'il vous plaît" ... "Je voudrais un verre de vin rouge." Very good!
Now, let's learn two important food words. Repeat after me:Read my full review on LouisvilleHotBytes, or click to it in this week's LEO Weekly.
"Cassoulet." Draw it out, warm and rich, just like the hearty dish itself, "Cahs-soo-lay."
Good! Now take care, this next word doesn't sound quite like it looks:
"Ratatouille." Someone bought it too many consonants. Drop a few to get "Rat-ah-TWEE," and wait eagerly for it to come to the table.
Got 'em? Now take your new words to a good French restaurant for a memorable dining experience. I suggest giving them a try at Louis Le Français, a fine, friendly French restaurant with a warm accent of France's Mediterranean South. Opened in 2012, it has become a landmark in downtown New Albany's growing restaurant cluster.
