French restaurant chains are starting to open up their first new locations in New York City and Boston in the past year, with restaurants in those cities saying the move has been a boon for their business.
While the restaurants opening in New Jersey and Massachusetts have been slow to open, the trend appears to be growing in New Orleans and Miami, as well as in Chicago.
A French restaurant in Miami has opened in two weeks, while a French restaurant and bar in New Brunswick has opened within the past month.
A restaurant in New Zealand has opened two months after opening in London.
And the trend has accelerated in the last two years, as the number of French restaurants opening across the country has surged.
“We have been able to open a French branch in New Hampshire,” said the restaurant’s owner, Alain Guiliani.
“This is a sign of the times, it’s the perfect timing.”
“I feel the need to thank our French friends in the United States,” he added.
“The food has been great.”
Guiliani said he had a “big smile” when he opened the restaurant in November.
“It’s a good sign.
It’s good to see so many French restaurants are opening in the U.S.,” he said.”
For me, it is the perfect opportunity to be in the business.
I love the city.
It has so much history, it has a lot of great people.
I’m really happy.”
In New York, the first restaurant to open in September opened in Manhattan.
The restaurant is located in the French Quarter and serves traditional French cuisine, including grilled cheese sandwiches, and is a nod to the city’s French heritage.
It opened to a rousing reception in October, attracting more than 20,000 diners.
The restaurant is expected to open to its first customers in late 2019.
“I want to be able to help the city and the French community and the American community,” Guiliano said.
“That is my dream.
I want to make the French food in New New York the best in the world.”
Guilliani said the French restaurant is an “exciting and challenging” project.
“It is a great example of how French food can be a global success,” he said, adding that the restaurant is a “truly French institution.”
He hopes that “this is a trend that continues in other cities around the world and hopefully we can build on this.”
Gueliani said his dream of opening a French French restaurant “will always be alive” and hopes to open at least two more.
He said the decision to open the restaurant “wasn’t easy.”
“We had a hard time because we were already working for months,” he explained.
“We knew the business wasn’t good.”
Guillaise said it was not an easy decision to take, but that he “believes in myself and my team, and the restaurant has been such a success.”
“The French community has been wonderful,” he continued.
“There is a lot to be proud of.
This is an opportunity for us to create a lot more and we’re very excited to be doing this.”
