From the Eater Tipline: "Café Luxembourg is one of my favorite restaurants...but they recently changed their iconic postcards that had real women on it (roll of back fat, dimpled backsides & thicker legs) to an airbrushed version! Compare the two attached. I love C-Lux but am disappointed that they aren't keeping it real. There was nothing wrong with the original postcard other than the cigarette!"
Here is the postcard in question:
UPDATE: Cafe Luxembourg's GM sends along the following:
The photograph on the left is exactly like the one we have used for the past 32 years... It is our current postcard; we sell it as a poster; it is a check presenter; it is the image on our wrapped chocolate wafers.
The air brushed photograph on the right, is the Cafe Luxembourg gift card holder [which the team used to promote the (Red) campaign in June]
Many years ago we hired a graphics firm to design our gift card along with the accompanying paper folder. Apparently someone along the line decided a new version of our lovely ladies was preferable! Not so...next printing we will definitely correct the oversight!
