Too ugly to eat at the front of the restaurant?

Night.Time_.Outdoor.Cafe_.Paris_You wait two weeks to get a reservation at the best new restaurant.

You wear your best clothes and prepare your wallet for the best food.

And finally you arrive, and what happens? You’re placed out the back, somewhere between the shouting chef and the constantly swinging door of the toilet.

The place isn’t even that busy, so what’s with that?

Well, sorry to break it to you but you just may not be attractive enough.

Reports from former waitresses at major restaurants in Paris prove that they were told to put the best-looking customers at the front and move the less attractive further along, out of sight, to create a view of an ugly-free Paris.

Le George, an upmarket restaurant on top floor of the Pompidou Centre, and Café Marly, which overlooks the Louvre, are both landmark Parisian eateries and have been accused of being biased snobs.

The waitresses say they were getting in trouble for not following this policy, with the owners and managers asking: “What are these ugly mugs doing at this table? Everyone can see them when they come in. It’s very bad for our image.” (Let’s just take a step back here and remember that this is the city with a dedicated cat cafe).

The only ones exempt seem to be celebrities, who get to enjoy the Parisian view without having to worry too much about having a face like an angel. (All’s well for Gérard Depardieu, then.)

Even the hostesses don’t have it easy, with the criteria for a job at either restaurant stating anyone “without a model’s physique and over 30 need not apply”. They were also told off for not showing their boobs and wearing long skirts.

And don’t even think about bribing the staff, with the boss of Le George, Gilbert Costes, visiting his restaurant periodically to “harp on about the house principles of which he is very proud, as he invented them” as one of the former waitresses told The Telegraph.

Looks like you may need to find a new favourite restaurant, or plastic surgeon.

    A lot of thanks for your entire efforts on this web site. My niece take interest in carrying out internet research and it’s easy to see why. Many of us hear all relating to the lively ways you offer good guides through your blog and therefore attract contribution from some other people on the matter plus my child is becoming educated a whole lot. Take pleasure in the rest of the new year. You’re conducting a dazzling job.Thanks for the strategies you have shared here. Furthermore, I believe there are some factors which keep your automobile insurance premium straight down. One is, to take into account buying cars that are in the good listing of car insurance companies. Cars which might be expensive are definitely more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance coverage is also depending on the value of your car or truck, so the more costly it is, then the higher the actual premium you spend.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your
    favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without
    having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
