Le Petit Bistro

It's old-school but not outmoded, with an exacting code of beliefs that owner/chef Jean-Michel Peuvrelle has carried with him throughout his life. Born in Pas-de-Calais in the northern tip of France, Peuvrelle is the son of a charcutier (butcher). He apprenticed in Strasbourg while earning a degree in accounting.

Now in his 24th year at Le Petit Bistro, Peuvrelle still cooks the old-fashioned way, six days per week. Veal, duck and fish stocks, made fresh daily, simmer for up to six hours; complex sauces are born, tasted, adjusted and allowed to marry in well-seasoned pots for hours.

Employee Lawsuits
Every business owner thinks, or at least hopes, that everyone who works for him is happy and that they all feel like a family. Maybe they do and maybe they don’t. But no matter how happy they are working for you, nothing stays the same. The best of employer–employee relationships can go downhill because of mistakes, misunderstandings and just plain human emotions.
