Gaby Brasserie Française, the charming bistro at the Sofitel New York, will bring April Fool’s Day back to its roots with a fun-filled Poisson d’Avril (April Fish) theme that will delight even its most serious guests. The Midtown Manhattan hotel will celebrate the holiday’s French origins on April 1 with an evening filled with surprise-and-delight treats.
As part of the French tradition, the target of a prank will unknowingly walk around with a paper fish taped to their back. Gaby guests who discover a fish on their back will not become the butt of a joke, but the recipient of a pleasant surprise. One lucky diner at each table will receive a surprise of sorts such as free cocktails, an appetizer to share, or a complimentary bottle of wine. Guests are also encouraged to visit Sofitel New York on Facebook and Google+ to share their favorite April Fool’s pranks using the hashtag #GabyAprilFools.
