McDonald’s restaurants to open at the Louvre

October 4, 2009

McDonald\'s(ChattahBox) — Well as we all know one is never far from a McDonald’s restaurant.  Even in Paris, France which prides itself on fine cuisine and art, one can find the Golden arches in the main tourist areas, except for one sacred place till now.  But now America’s fast food giant is celebrating its 30th anniversary in France with a coup de force opening it’s 1,142nd Gallic outlet a few yards from the entrance of the world’s most visited museum the Louvre. Holy French fries! 

The Louvre confirmed to the Daily Telegraph that the new McDonald’s it will be positioned in the underground approach to the Louvre, known as the Carrousel du Louvre. The chain apparently is facing a lot of resentment among museum staff, who feel having a McDonalds on the premises is sacrilege.  But the encroachment seems inevitable. C’est la vie.
