There’s something about an Air France hostess that just screams, Chic! Is it the sweep of her chignon, or her Christian Lacroix-designed uniform? Either way, there’s the same je ne sais quoi quality to the carrier’s inflight magazine, Air France Madame. For years now, it’s won awards for its excellent coverage of French and international culture. Like the reportage in the latest issue on Sydney, by resident journalist Marie Le Fort. In a beautifully laid-out three page spread, mademoiselle Le Fort covers some of my personal favourite food spots, including The Sailors Club at Rose Bay, The Boathouse at Palm Beach, and that terrific Greek restaurant, Apollo at Potts Point. But of course, the thing I’m particularly chuffed about is her mention of “the plush, imaginative spaces created by Nick Tobias for The Bridge Room.” The Bridge Room, Sunny and Ross Lusted’s fantastic CBD eatery, really is one of the finest dining experiences in town, and I am delighted each time they wins awards and citations. Un grand merci, Marie!
