Dejeuner, "L'imparfait", Bergerac, Dordogne, France

Dejeuner, "L'imparfait", Bergerac, Dordogne, France

Side street in Bergerac, with tables set in the middle of a medieval street with a central trough for chamber pot contents. In the Dark Ages, the peasants gave way to the nobles who walked on the higher edges of the street to avoid the contents in the middle. It gave rise to a French aphorism for the upper classes, "les gens qui marchents sur les hauts paves", the people who walk on the high cobblestones. Still used today in France.Here the stones are partially covered in asphalt.The restaurant name, of course, refers to Cyrano. His silhouette with a big nose is on the back of each chair under the restaurant name.
