Le garçon et le chef


I caught these two waiting in the doorway at L'Isola, off rue Mouffetard.  That day, I was a bit early for dinner and caught them waiting longingly for customers.  Sadly, when I returned to Paris this last time,  I found that they had closed.

The shoes say it all. Great shot!

What a great shot. Also in Paris there is crisis so restaurants and shops have to close because people have less money to spend.

quel domage !!
but who knows, maybe they found a better job in the meantime and were able to buy new shoes?

I guess France is starting to feel the economic woes that the rest of us have. It's hard to make a go of anything in this slow to recover environment, :(

The restaurant business is an impossibly difficult way to earn a living.

Une belle capture...
Dommage que cet établissement ait fermé ses portes. J'espère qu'un prochain successeur viendra vous faire vibrer...
gros bisous

V, I followed your recommendation and ate at this restaurant several times on my last visit and loved the food. I am very sad that they have closed.

You have to be special to succeed in the restaurant business in Paris.

A charming shot...when times are tough, it's especially hard for restaurants...we've had a number of changes up here with restaurants and shops closing, and others opening...The only thing guaranteed in life is everything changes!!!
