I have eaten at great restaurants around the world and I have eaten at really bad ones. It's usually easy to tell the difference. But then there are places like Le Pigeon that I quite frankly do not begin to understand. I do not understand...More

We were in town for business and were told that reservations usually fill up two weeks in advance as the place is quite small. The exception is if you arrive when the restaurant opens and ask to sit at the chef's table (which is basically...More
