Maybe they just looked at your pictures and decided not to go?

Or it may mean that the board is biased because of features unrelated to the food*. There's nothing wrong with such a bias because we know restaurants are not about food, but Wilfrid and Instagram tog

The tenor of this thread is not that it's useful, but that it's serving exceptionally good bistro/bourgeois cuisine. The fact that Lafayette, Montmartre, and some faceless places do/did it worse, doesn't make it exceptional.

 

I'm really surprised at the level of enthusiasm.

 

I know Melonious went to LCB Brasserie Richou when it was (all too briefly open). Does he think this is far superior to that?

Surely the level of enthusiasm is related to ambience and service rather than specifically what's on the plate?

My enthusiasm is 95% related to the food. I do not recall LCB Brasserie Richou, but I did not go there multiple times, so I guess it was not compelling. So far, two meals at LC have me wanting to return. Maybe it will not last, but for now, I am sold. Ambience and service don't sway me unless it is in the negative. Loud room, small tables, uncomfortable chairs will push me away no matter how good the food.

 

I have had many meals at L'Absinthe and would go back in a jiff, but I am not drawn back as I am with LC.

 

"Useful" to me means delicious, enjoyable food in comfortable surroundings with decent service. Very few restaurants I know fit that bill for me. JG fell out. Le Bernadin is high on my list but not a frequent choice. Minetta is also high on my list.

Since rabbit and chicken taste virtually alike, just avoid the rabbit (have it at Tapestry) and order chicken.

There's no chicken on the damn menu.

 

Thought in order to be considered an authentic French Bistro, a chicken dish is imperative?

Perhaps Rose does not claim it is an "authentic" French bistro. Just perhaps.
