A fancy schmancy restaurant in Paris is being accused of doing the despicable. A former employee of the Georges is accusing the restaurant of sitting patrons according to aesthetics. Ugly in the back, pretty in the front.
“There are beautiful people, you put them here; there are not beautiful people, you put them there,” a former hostess said her boss told her, according to newspaper Le Canard Enchaine.
The former employee said her bosses, Gilbert and Jean-Louis Costes, were proud of their policy.
“He drummed these house rules into us, and he was very proud of them because he came up with them,” she claimed.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the staff also had to learn “linguistic clues” when taking reservations over the phone. These clues would help them decide whether they were hot to trot, or ugly to the bone. The only exceptions to the rules were celebrities. So do the ugly and pretty French people parle francais differently?
