ORIGIN OF THE D'ORSAY

COUNT GABRIEL, GUILLAUME, ALFRED D'ORSAY

A French officer who lived in Paris from 1801 to 1852. A cultivated man of the world who became lieutenant of King Louis XVIII bodyguards. Later he joined ranks with Napoleon Bonaparte where he was named director of "des Beaux Arts."

Count Gabriel D'Orsay, known for his exquisite manners, was nicknamed King of the Dandys due to his utmost elegance in both dress and behavior.

It is said that he changed his gloves eight times a day. As well, being the epitome of style, Count D'Orsay gave his name to a top hat which has since become the familiar logo for The D'ORSAY Restaurant Pub.
