Thuet questions

Hi all,

First of all, how is the name pronounced, and secondly is it a good brunch spot?

  1. two it. or at least thats how they pronounced it on RMO.

    never had the brunch but heard it was good.

    has anyone else been?


    1. I would think that Thuet is pronounced "Too-ay."

        I stand corrected. French pronunciation rules would have one pronouncing it "Too-ay." I just got off the phone with my sister, who spent 16 years living in Paris, and she confirmed what you've all been saying.

        In this case, as with Fouquet on the Champs-Elysees, the "et" at the end is pronounced "et." So, it is "Too-et."

          You called your sister to make sure?! That's awesome. It his name, though, so I figure he can pronounce it any way he wants to.

            No, I did not call her specifically to ask her how to pronounce "Thuet."

            I'm not THAT bored at work! :)

            By the way, she now lives in rural Pennsylvania - a cheaper phone call. :-)

      2. Too-it. It is a fantastic brunch spot.

        1. Thanks everyone -- am now doubly looking forward to a celebratory brunch at Thuet!
