That's an astonishing drop for ducasse - anyone understand why?

 

Basically, it was removed because it will close in January 2007 to relocate:

"'This is a guide for 2007 and it was not right to keep it in,' said Jean-Luc Naret, the director of the guides. 'We’ll re-evaluate it when it reopens. They understand that.'"

One of the worst meals I had last year was at BLT Fish, one of the most overrated places in town. I'm glad it was dropped.
