    Im sorry-somehow my computer did crazy things. Here are my Qs: Was the bistro as good as I remember? What happened to the principals? The Charles St bistro introduced me to Steak frites; since then, only Petit Louis has been comparable, and I do not favor PL--foood is excellent, but the noise and supercilious service always bothers me
