French cuisine has developed over centuries of social and economic change.
Up until 1789, when the Bastille was stormed, the majority of French citizens were poor farmers whose diets were based mainly on grains. In the decades that followed, an upper class emerged and believed good food was a mark of social standing. Even though high end cuisine was being served in the elite private homes, all was not well in the nation. During this time, 70 percent of French peasants still suffered poverty and malnutrition.
World War I heralded the beginning of modern French cuisine. Improved transportation during the first half of the 20th century spread the wealth and regional cuisine that had previously been segregated. Tourism came into high demand after World War II and furthered the need for grand cuisine at a fair price. Now anyone could saunter into a tavern or restaurant and have a substantial, elegant meal.
Daiquiri Dick's is closed on Tuesdays until October and will be closed during the month of September for vacation.
