Former servers say Paris eateries seat patrons based on looks

PARIS, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Former servers at two upscale Paris restaurants said they were told to reserve the best tables for the most physically attractive customers.

The former servers at restaurants Georges and Cafe Marly told Le Canard Enchaine their bosses ordered them to abide by a seating chart that specified separate sections -- one for customers deemed to be good looking and another for their less attractive counterparts -- France 24 reported Friday.

The ex-workers said the policy was instituted by Gilbert Costes, who owns both restaurants.

Costes' policy had one exception for unattractive customers -- they could receive the more prominent tables if they were celebrities, the former servers said.
