Sometimes they pass by the hotel, and we comp them a drink or a coffee, but most of the time it's them bringing us the gifts, as we're the one's sending them the good clients....

fresh_a: What gifts do you and your colleagues typically receive from maitre d's? What was the most unusual gift you have received?

Do you receive gifts from regular hotel guests? What was the most unsual gift you have received?
Also, what happens to maitre ds' functions as they age and become less agile? (The Lucas-Carton senior maitre d' seems to be at the door, greetings guests, which at that restaurant is a very significant function. The older maitre d' at L'Ambroisie appears to be around, although the young maitre d' Pascal seems more active in the dining room at times.) Which restaurants have older maitre d's in Paris?
Could you give us a primer on the key areas of a maitre d's responsibilities?
