  Night Out French West Village Moderate Don't Bother

dash;served with vegetable cous cous and pancetta—were watery, flabby, and tasteless. Yikes.

We left Metropol quite quickly, after a strange exchange with a passive aggressive manager who came to our table to assure us that even though there were people waiting at the bar for our table, that we should take out time and not rush. Okay, sure.

After we exited the restaurant, we were standing out on the corner to decide where to go next for a drink (or ten), when Christiano came outside, flanked by several friends who were all blowing sunshine his way, telling him how amazing the food was and how much they loved his restaurant. Yes, I am sure they did. It was probably a lot roomier than Christiano’s apartment, and with a better bar. Friends may tell you what you want to hear, but eventually someone will tell you the truth. I actually spoke to Christiano after my dinner experience—he is a quite a nice guy so I am a bit sorry to have to write such a negative review. I gave him some constructive advice, so I hope that things improve at Metropol. Because your friends, who may be lovely creatures indeed, are not going to keep you in business. Your customers will.

Metropol is located at 234 West 4th Street, 212-206-8393.
