The Worst Restaurant in the World

lami-louis.jpgCritic A. A. Gill went to the bistro L'Ami Louis in Paris and wrote a pretty epic takedown, calling it "the worst restaurant in the world": "It's painted a shiny, distressed dung brown. The cramped tables are set with labially pink cloths, which give it a colonic appeal and the awkward sense that you might be a suppository." And then he got the broiled kidneys: "Somehow the heat had welded them together into a gray, suppurating renal brick. It could be the result of an accident involving rat babies in a nuclear reactor. They don't taste as nice as they sound." [Vanity Fair]
