Astoria

L’Artiste: A mixed French experience in Astoria

First impressions do matter, and host Youssef Echyabi at L’Artiste in Astoria blew it big time. He greeted us in a T-shirt emblazoned with a witticism that included the “f-word.” We know that formality may be a thing of the past, but we don’t think that dress down needs to go that far down. We had a child in our party and that wasn’t something he needed to see. To add insult to injury, a female member of our party arrived early, and was not offered so much as a glass of water, let alone a cocktail while she waited. Comments (2).
