This past summer I was lucky enough to be in Paris for
a short while, and while there I picked up a copy of
the new(ish) Paris Zagat guide. It was very
interesting to me that restaurants that were far
superior in quality to NY restuarants with 25+ food
ratings often got no higher than a 16 or 17. One that
comes to mind is Au Bascou, a bistro that in my opinion
simply crushes the best French fare NYC has to offer.
It got a 16 from French voters. Are New Yorkers just
much more generous? Or are their standards that much
