Markets in Everything: U.S. Food Trucks in Paris

NY Times -- "In France, there is still a widespread belief that the daily diet in the United States consists of grossly large servings of fast food. But in Paris, American food is suddenly being seen as more than just restauration rapide. Among young Parisians, there is currently no greater praise for cuisine than “très Brooklyn,” a term that signifies a particularly cool combination of informality, creativity and quality. 

All three of those traits come together in the American food trucks that have just opened here [in Paris], including Cantine California, which sells tacos stuffed with organic meat (still a rarity in France), and a hugely popular burger truck called Le Camion Qui Fume (The Smoking Truck), owned by Kristin Frederick, a California native who graduated from culinary school here."

...and the French are correct. It's OK though,Mayor Bloomberg will make it all better.

france actually has a federal agency to keep the language pure.

they tried (totally unsuccessfully) to stop usage of the phrase "le weekend".

i suspect that "tres brooklyn" is next.
