Momma takes the family out to eat at a nice restaurant in celebration of Daddy's big news. There they meet a French mother and her three children who are enjoying their "Apertif" at a nearby table. The French woman invites them to join tables and experience a proper French meal where all the food is tasted slowly in several courses. Though the night lasts longer than they expected, Martin and Sylvia's family come away with an experience to remember.
