Tourist breaks cultural barrier, becomes first American to eat at restaurant without English menu
PARIS – Casey Osbourne walked into a restaurant today in France. Many American tourists have walked into French restaurants before, but Osbourne did what no previous tourist had — he looked at the French menu, spoke fluently in French, and enjoyed his Soupe à l’Oignon and Saumon Grillé.
Witnesses say the French waitress stood in shock after hearing the order — she was prepared to say “No English” when the American-looking American asked in English for an English menu.
But Osbourne surprised her and everyone else. And history was made.
