Some brasseries in Paris will serve steak and french fries.

Some people can become bilingual without living in a foreign country.

We made some interesting contacts at the exhibition. We made a few interesting contacts at the exhibition.

"Few" is used when you can count objects: You can say "there are few cows", because you can say "there are 2 cows"

"Little" is used for things you cannot count: "There is little milk"; you can't say "there are 2 milk"
