The authenticity of a restaurant, or "what's the ethnicity of your server?"

For an ethnic restaurant to be authentic, does its servers also have to be (for lack of a better word) ethnically appropriate?

In other words, for a French Bistro to be authentic, does its servers have to French? Tournesol in Long Island apparently seems to think so, hiring only French servers for the restaurant to create the aura of authenticity.

Do you think this is something that's necessary?
