La Poubelle fans?

La Poubelle is in my neighborhood, I really really want to like it, but everytime I go there I get turned off by the super rude staff and waaaay overpriced drinks. ($10 for Absolut, at least a dollar more than some of the most expensive places in town!) I'm not cheap, but I've also worked in bars, and know the difference between "markup" and "screwing the customers over". The food looks pretty good, I've never stayed there long enough to try it, just wondering if I should give it a go, or not even bother. I don't mind paying a lot for good food, and I can deal with attitude, but I don't want to have to do both of those things together. Thanks, CH's!
