    With all due respect to the vintage-iconic RJ Grunt's and Fritz That's It in days of yore, I've always thought that Mon Ami Gabi was the theme-based star in the LEYE stable.

    Spent so much time at the MAG in Vegas at the Paris, with the outdoor patio possibly the best people-watching spot on the Strip. I had read at some point that it was per capita per square foot the highest-grossing of all the Melman restaurants.

    And quality just kicks a** there. Salads, hanger steak, frites. The French onion soup...I spent 4 days in Paris trying to order something as good as MAG's, and failed. Authentic, who cares? It's magical. Recently, I've dined at the Bethesda, MD location--as good as Vegas, or Oak Brook.

    It's gotta be mall & office economics. And LEYE does not dally--something looks like it may not work in the future, they pull the plug like an iron lung.

    Hi,

    A friend in the last month visited the MAG in Oak Brook and was disappointed by the food. I don't know the particulars, just that they were not thrilled. It could be they were having problems there.

    I was at Oak Brook for a funeral lunch in August. It was not easy finding parking for two reasons: a number of spots were reserved for those picking up, and all other parking spaces were filled. Parking was just as dense at noon as it was at 2:30 pm when I left.

    Regards,
