Another “Why I wouldn’t go there.” My mom and I wanted to peek in this restaurant (mostly because this woman’s dessert looked so good and I wanted to ask a waiter what it was!) and the wait staff was so incredibly rude that I would never go there no matter the price-upholding true French stereotypes. He acted as though it was so horrible we would walk through the door, like my mom and I were committing some sort of crime by considering sitting down. He asked what we wanted, and when my mom told him we wanted to look at the menu and thought we might come here a little later, he scoffed and in a very rude manner told us there was a menu outside. Don’t worry, we told them off.

When deciding which restaurant to go to (between the bistro we had already been to for breakfast or a nice restaurant across the street), we had to take into account the decor (because the food was very similar). Though the other restaurant, Largo, was also highly recommended, they were having Jazz night and there was a cover charge even if you were having dinner. I didn’t like that one bit. Also, the decor was quite tacky (giant sofas). I think eating good food and loud music, noise, conversations don’t mix. One should be able to experience the food with every bite, without distraction. Needless to say, we went back to Bistro Les Bossus and had a wonderful meal.
