Subject: NY bistro
Dear Debbie,

MANY years ago while living in northern New Jersey, our favorite bistro in NYC was Pierre Au Tunnel. Go to Google,enter restaurant pierre tunnel it is the first listing , complete with menu--it's still the same menu! At the time I had not been to Paris but imagined Pierre Au Tunnel to be just like a real Parisian bistro. When I got to Paris, I had not been wrong. Perhaps as in the case of so many European bistros/restaurants, this one has endured. It used to be in the Gourmet Magazine Let's Eat Out section until recently when this feature was reduced to a worthless page and a half. I share your experiences of being often disappointed by dining out in the USA (except in Chicago.)
