In 1765 a Parisian soup-vendor named Boulanger (which, confusingly, means Baker) put up a sign outside his shop in Latin, reading: << VENITE AD ME VOS QUI STOMACHO LABORATIS ET EGO RESTAURABO VOS >>
"Come to me, all who labour in the stomach, and I will restore you."
The idea of serving individual meals to customers who could sit down and eat them on the spot was, amazingly, very new; so the restorative aspect of Boulanger's innovation was incorporated into the name for this type of establishment.
Thus, the word "restaurant" comes from the French word " la restauration", meaning "restoration".
