Five Star Restaurants: French Cafe

 
Five star restaurants are only worth five stars for one simple reason: they exercise care in every aspect of their business. European food in particular requires time to perfect – time spent slow cooking food to its perfect state. Unfortunately diners don’t want to wait for food to be slow cooked – they want to eat and they want to eat now. For restaurants this involves cooking food well before it is ordered and being prepared to waste any meals that weren’t ordered.
