Paris, the city where fine cuisine was invented, the mother of all chefs, the land of Michelin star chefs is now occupied with the burger craze. Street burgers, American burgers, French burgers, Gourmet burgers... The name may differ from place to another,  but at the end of the day its still a burger. Since they are considered as the city of taste and flavors... Would their burger be better, more sophisticated and maybe have a fine culinary touch.
