Dirk Gently's Holistic Wiki

L'Esprit d'Escalier is a restaurant in London in the Dirk Gently books.


Richard MacDuff tried to book a table at L'Esprit d'Escalier for himself and his girlfriend Susan Way, but the maître d' told him he'd have to do so three weeks in advance, thwarting Richard's plan.

Later, Richard was able to use time travel courtesy of Urban "Reg" Chronotis to go back three weeks in time and book the table in advance. The time he made the call coincided with the delivery of his sofa which had been stuck on the staicase ever since; by opening Reg's door that had materialised in the stairway, his friends prevented the sofa from getting stuck.
