[Tagging] Brasserie

But unlike a real pub (a "café"  in Dutch and French - or "bruine
kroeg"), you can get a decent meal in a brasserie, or  ice cream,
pancakes around 4pm etc. So the focus is much more on food imho.
So are you suggesting that amenity=pub; food=yes is better ?

the description tag is very general, but could be used. However, I
want something like the school:FR-tag. I believe that such a tag (or
tags) would make it easier for apps to allow the user to search in
their native language. It's my feeling that information gets lost by
translating bistro, taverne, brasserie, etc. to amenity=pub +
food=yes. (or amenity=restaurant).
