Friday Flashback #245

One of longtime Westporters’ favorite activities is trying to remember the names of all the restaurants that preceded a current one.

Take Hudson Malone. Most people knew the spot at the corner of Main and Canal Streets as 323; before that, Bogey’s, Oliver’s, Stone’s Throw, and a few others.

But it takes a special resident to recall Maud Chez Elle.

Even then, who remembers that the French-named restaurant looked like something straight out of the French Alps?

Which, come to think of it, was a bit like another French restaurant: Le Chambord.

Popular a decade or so later, it is no longer a restaurant of any type.

Today, Le Chambord is the site of ASF Sports & Outdoors.

C’est la vie!
