This one ended up being pretty convoluted. The name of the restaurant, Jardin des Cygnes I thought made for an interesting name, it maybe sounded more haute cuisine at the time. I thought the Argentina scenes were well done, really helped ramp the paranoia. Plus always fun to see the fussy Poirot bum-rushed out of a country.

The English, they do not have a cuisine, my friend. They have only the food.

I thought this one was pretty impressive considering how short the original short story is -- they really gave it a lot of heft.
