Giving a gift card to a restaurant in Paris; new news, at least for me.
So, a few days ago a long-time American/British friend/couple asked if the French do gift restaurant cards because a FR-US couple they were related to just got married in Central Park in NYC. I had no idea and was prepared to get a look of astonishment mixed with disbelief when I asked this of the responsible at Les Tablettes de Jean-Louis Nomicos today. Not at all, "of course Monsieur, what names, what address to send it, would you like a message like this..........?"
So I have no idea how many places do this, but they were really cool about it.
