The brother of Toscano's owner Chef Jean Michel Jasserand opened a French cafe earlier this year. Cafe Noir is located at the U.B. City Piazza, the same venue as Toscano. The al fresco dining area didn't remind me of cafes along Champs-Élysées but the modern decor and ambiance of the place made me forget for a moment that I was in India.

The owner gives a bad name to French people. Ridiculous man. I went with a small child and she spilled her drink. I helped clean it up and as I rose to go get her cleaned up, the owner called me back and demanded I take the dirty napkins with me. I said fine, and apologized, and he spat back that I clearly wasn't sorry and gave me a lecture. Then the waitress refused to let me use their trash bin to throw away the tissues! WTF??? What exactly is wrong with those people? Disgusting place and people. What's funny is I could have bought out the whole place, and they looked down at me? There is no excuse for lack of basic decency.
