Two French Restaurants Seat People Based On Attractiveness
Two French restaurants are taking aesthetics to a new level by seating guests according to attractiveness. According to two former employees, the better looking the guests are, the better the table they are given.
The two employees also claim that staff members are told to put the non-good-looking ones into the corners.
In fact, the employees have said that management calls them out if they make the wrong seating arrangements, calling it bad for the restaurant's image.
As a precaution, says the two former hostesses, guests booking over the telephone are told that no table promises are made, so that the hostess still has the ability to seat them in the corner if they have undesirable looks.
Finally, the employees also reveal that the restaurant is very strict on workers too, saying that nobody over 30 or under 5'7 could work at the restaurant.
The restaurants in question are owned by the influential Costes brothers. One restaurant is called the Café Marly and overlooks the Louvres Museum. The other is called Le Georges and overlooks the Parisian skyline.
Readers have took to humor to respond to the revelations.
