La Goulou on Madison Ave.

Allan Evans | Oct 8, 1998 10:03 PM

As my Italian wife reported, after a hideous
opening at the Italian Cultural Institute of a
horrendous pair of "artists" (one has money and
thus dabbles in the medium) with one genuine artist
(absent) a dinner was offered by Madama Moneybags
at La Goulou. The French wine made the $4 Merlot
bottles being hawked on such nightmarish food
strips as Francis Lewis Boulg seem like a Gran Cru
Exceptionell. (pardon spelling- software is
glitching). She nearly lost her stomach with the
fish bisque, highly touted by the loutish and
swarthy staff. Then came a disgusting steak au
poivre. The same dishes were inflicted on all 15
guests by the Florentine bitch who was "treating".
For dessert, she enjoyed a nausea and headache
which lasted for 12 more hours. Needless to say
the place was crowded with lively East Siders. The
tab came to about $60 a person.
Highly recommended as an emetic.
