"Les Mauvais Garcons"

Les Mauvais Garcons (The Bad Boys). I found this enticing restaurant on the Rue des Mauvais Garcons near our hotel in the Marais District. This area was the original aristocratic arrondisement, fell into disfavor and disrepair, renewed itself as the Jewish district, and flowered into its current chic status as the true Gay Paree. Just for fun, I had my brother Bryan e mail me his profile, and I put him in as the customer. I'm not a bad boy, but I hope to dine there some day, and find out the origin of its name.
