Lost City Asks "Who Goes to Pergola des Artistes

Of all the restaurants I've investigated for my running "Who Goes There?" feature on Eater.com, Pergola des Artistes, in Times Square, has proved to be the biggest discovery, food-wise. This bistro is not coasting on just atmosphere. The food, while not genius stuff, is good, a selection of well-turned-out classics. There was nothing I had to choke down. No perfunctory iceberg lettuce salad, no basket of stale roles, no free appetizers so bad you wish the term "on the house" didn't exist.

This sort of revelation is exactly what I had hoped for when I began this series.
