Burgers Beat Baguette Sandwiches, Steak-Frites in France

Burgers have become the new favorite food in France, beating steak-frites and baguette sandwiches, a study released today by Gira Conseil showed.

Three-quarters of France’s 110,000 restaurants now include the American bun-and-beef classic on their menus. Their sales have jumped 40 percent since 2011 and the burger is beating the traditional premium meat and fish dishes, the study showed.
