Recently, National Restaurant Consultants president David Kincheloe took a trip to Paris; and during his time there, he made it a point to visit Le Procope
, the oldest restaurant in Paris. Founded in 1686, the restaurant has hosted such guests as Napolean Bonaparte, Benjamin Franklin, and Voltaire. It has, at different times in history, been a haunt for the literary elite; a rendevouz point during the French Revolution; and now, almost a museum--encased in glass is Napolean Bonaparte's hat, among other artifacts and treasures.
The menu, though not extensive, covers the bases of classic French cooking. Kincheloe made it a point to ask about the oldest recipe still on the menu and wound up tasting the centuries old calf's head soup.
