New York World's Fair 'Le Restaurant Francais' (Flags), 1940
Created by a Syndicat des Restauranteurs which included the Café de Paris, Drouant, Fouquet's, Hotel Meurice, Pavillon Royal, Armenonville, Pré Catalan, and the French Line, Le Restaurant Français in the French Pavilion was the most renowned of the 112 restaurants at the 1939-40 World's Fair in New York. The cuisine, service, and décor in the 350-seat, glass-walled dining room, made an astounding impression on the American public. It was run by restaurateur Henri Soulé who went on to open Le Pavillon on East 55th Street in 1941.
