A quick insider: one of the editors of Condé Nast ate at Itineraires the other day - booked under "Condé Nast" . Wow, wonder if he'll be treated like the other customers..

Yesterday's JDD had a small blurb saying that 320 chefs (incl Paul Bocuse) are fighting obesity by providing full menus that consist of 1,200 calories until May 24th as a way of not gaining weight, not to lose weight.

Long rumored, Alain Ducasse today was featured on the France 24, in a piece by Nina Biddle Luna about the opening of his newest (after that in the 8th a while back) cooking school - the Ecole de Cuisine in the 16th that will have shorter lines, demonstrate shopping, be relaxed, have ten different courses, cover various levels, run from half-a-day to a full day and cover world cuisine.

How about the rumours (Figaroscope, Optimum) on Marx taking over the Renoma on George V? In their window it says reopening June 3rd (I think...) but no mention of a change of style..........
