        Let's hope Mme Acabo is ok and that l'Etoile d'Or re-opens.

      2. Horribly telling photo:

        It appears that those injured were workers cutting pipe in the basement who possibly ignited a gas cylinder.

          Oh wow, that picture makes me want to cry. We were there for the first time last May, and vowed it wouldn't be the last. It was such a unique experience! Here's hoping all the injured recover & that Mme Acabo can rebuild & reopen. I think she might whither away without her shop - she has such passion for her craft.

        2. Any update on whether she is rebuilding?
