Le Buisson Ardent?

I don't see a lot of comments on this board about this restaurant, although I read that Pudlo guide recommends it highly. Has anyone been recently? How was your experience?

  1. Went a couple of months ago because guide books seemed to say it was good. It was not. Pretentious, pretentious, pretentious. Obnoxious, dismissive servers (and my party was all speaking French, I was the only American, so it wasn't tourist-snobbery), ambitiously "creative" food that completely misfired with every single dish, and slow serving times. Never going back.

      Thanks for the tip! I used Chowhound exclusively for my last trip to Paris and had excellent meals every time. Pudlo will take a back seat to Chowhound opinion, I think....
