I ate at Lucien this evening, the food was good and the service was friendly. The problem was the place itself: it was very noisy and HOT (there was a floor fan that didn't do much), and a bit lacking in ambience, I thought. In short, I have been to better bistros in the city, and my question is this: Why did Time Out New York vote for this as best bistro in NY? Should I be suspicious of their other choices as well??
