Why G.a. ?

Why G.a.?

The name of our restaurant is inspired by the following story: Frederick II, known as Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, invited his friend, the French philosopher Voltaire, to dinner at the castle of “Sans Souci”  Berlin by sending this cryptogram:

pourquoiga1

(Come dinner á Sanssouci?)

Voltaire replied by that other cryptogram: 
pourquoiga2

(I have big appetite!)

We share a strong affinity with this answer …
