New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

After a turn on Fox's Kitchen Nightmares with pugnacious British chef Gordon Ramsay, Le Bistro in Lighthouse Point has a fresh coat of aqua paint but not much else. Chef/owner Andy Trousdale's menu still reads like Frenchified resort fare from the ΄80s - duck egg Benedict, tuna tartare, caesar salad, grouper en papillote - which would be forgivable if not for the ham-handed execution. The grouper is mushy and sits on a nest of pallid, overcooked vegetables. Starters -- like goat cheese topped with lavender and bee pollen or grilled vegetable antipasto -- sound fine but arrive as little more than glorified hors d'oeuvre plates. And torchon au foie gras tastes like it has sat in the walk-in since filming wrapped on Ramsay's visit. Though by-the-glass options are cheap, the wine list is staid, and the décor is cold and stuffy. The nightmare, it seems, is far from over.

    This small French inspired Bistro has a taken a whole new life of its own. Featured on the show Kitchen Nightmares with host Gordon Ramsay the new menu is "scrumtrulecent".The ambiance of the bistro is inviting and not pretentious and the food is set at a moderate price, which will keep you coming back for more!
