This story is about taking chances, adventure, and friendship with a twist of humor. Picture sitting down to watch your favorite play whether it's on Broadway or at your local community theater; the stage is set, so get ready to be taken on an adventure in Folly Bistro by Bruno Huber. This book will have you laughing and eager to read what happens next throughout the pages. And the employees help to keep the momentum going with their antics. It can be difficult being a restauranteur but imagine when you're in partnership with someone that sees the business in a different way. The reader will enjoy watching two friends go into the restaurant business and try to bring a former business back to life and make it their own. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Le Bistro, sit down and eat with us.

I enjoyed Folly Bistro by Bruno Huber because it reflected the chatter, nuisances, and chaos that can go on in the restaurant business. This book put me in mind of Murder on the Orient Express and Clue coming together, bringing with it a cast of characters, and an interesting plot all centering around an abandoned French restaurant. One thing I found interesting was the interjection that the author pointed out from the movie, Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Bruno referenced from the movie the five basic laws of food: Ingredients, Knowledge, Cleanliness, Consistency, and Passion. If you love food like I do or are an aspiring chef, I highly recommend this book and the movie. Enjoy!
