On April 1st, 2014, charming French bistro Gaby Brasserie Française, located in  the stylish Sofitel New York, will return April Fool’s Day to its lighthearted roots with a fun-filled Poisson d’Avril (April Fish) event certain to delight its guests. The Midtown Manhattan hotel will celebrate the holiday’s French origins with an evening filled with treats and surprises.

In the French tradition, the target of a prank will unknowingly have a paper fish taped to his or her back. One lucky Gaby diner at each table, upon discovering the paper fish on their person, will receive a pleasant amenity such as a free cocktail, an appetizer, or  even 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.
