French dining establishments have been popular with our Check, Please! guests – over the course of the series, they have chosen more than 20 of them to be featured, so far. And it’s easy to see why, as these eateries tend to have a romantic, elegant, and often decadent ambiance, transporting you to another place and time.
I have spent a good portion of my career working in French restaurants, and have a fond appreciation for French food, culture, and wine. But as delicious as they may be, French wines can sometimes be intimidating and not as easy to decipher as New World wines from California, Australia, or New Zealand.
