I visited Le Coucou for dinner a couple of months ago. It's a very good restaurant. I wrote about it on my recently-created dweebsite www.engagingfood.com. I mention sous-vide only once.

Sneakeater, that's wild. I was there last night and I had the same chicken and thought it was great. Same for the oeufs en meurette. Did you have those?

As I said, it's all relative. I'm about to have my third meal in five days at my favorite restaurant in Venice. It puts Le Bernardin to shame in terms of offerings, freshness and preparation. it also lets you know where you are.

How can a restaurant specializing in fish that is in a place that is fish-deprived relative to countries surrounded by seas and offers a junk fish (escolar) banned in Italy and Japan be voted the best fish restaurant there is? Better than serious restaurants getting fish off the Tuscan coast, the Adriatic/Venice lagoon and the inland seas of Japan? These lists are a joke and are meaningless to anyone the least bit gourmand.

On one hand the Michelin people bitch and moan about how French cuisine isn't getting its proper due, but on the other hand when a foreigner comes along and does it with no gimmicks and in a way that respects and enhances exactly what it is that Michelin bemoans, then it's as if the chef and restaurant don't exist. There's no rhyme or reason to their ratings in New York, etc.. It's only about selling tires.
