Nice to see a different type of restaurant opening in Antioch. Sounds like David's Bistro will fit right in.

His food is excellent, his menu is eclectic, and he's a really nice guy. I've eaten there twice and loved it both times. I hope he's in Antioch for a long time. Great restaurant.

I just had dinner there last week and it was excellent and fairly priced. I hope he get the business to stick around for awhile because good food will bring the people in. Look at Piasano's on Broadway in Richmond; on a side street in the middle of foreclosed empty store fronts yet packed every night!

I love French cuisine!

French fries
French toast
French bread
French's mustard
French doughnuts
French Fried shrimp
French Fried onion rings

I hope they have all of these. Most other French food is pretty fru-fru. See ya.

I hope you're joking Seymore (your list is obviously a joke, but the "fru-fru" comment I'm not sure about). You're missing out on alot of great food if you dismiss all French cuisine as "fru-fru." Expand your horizons past meat and potatoes and you could find alot more out there to like.

puhhlease. I've tried french food. Mostly a lot of empty plate with a small morsel in the middle of it and a ribbon of sauce by some chef who thinks he is an artist. That will be $34.95 please.

Feed it to your fru-fru french poodle.

I'd rather eat a decent Italian beef sandwich with some fresh cut fries.

Puhlease yourself. What you describe is less attributable to French cuisine than it is to "fine dining" establishments. You can find just as small of portions and "plate artistry" at similarly high-priced restraurants that serve Italian, German, Asian, etc.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a good italian beef or meat and potatoes for that matter. But to label all French cuisine as you have is rediculous and small-minded.

Go to Dave's Bistro and tell me you feel over charged for a small portion of "fru-fru" food. I believe his food is a good value. Not somewhere I would eat everyday, but a great treat. When I want to eat out cheap the Italian beef surely makes the grade, but when I want a nice dinner out with the wife Dave's delivers.

Not to my liking. I would care for some:
Carbonnade
Potjevlesch
Kik ar Fars
Boeuf Bourguignon
Fondue bourguignonne
Raclette
Tartiflette

All of which are hearty meat and cheese dishes. Nothing like the "fru-fru" meals Seymore describes.

Oh, I forgot. We're supposed to hate the French. Go stuff you face with "Freedom Fries" so I don't have to listen to your adolescent babble anymore.

French food is for snobs and you sure sound like one. This type of food is about as appealing to me as eau de toilette. Or is that Oh! The Toilet!

BTW, ridiculous is not spelled "rediculous" so before you start calling people small minded try not to gargle with your French wine.

I like smelling my middle finger after I have it in FiFi. Oui! Oui!

Whatever Sey-moron. You are the true trailer trash snob and a grade-A example of why Americans are considered to be the rudest, stupidest people in the world.

I enjoy a variety of cuisines. You aren't even educated enough to know what French cuisine really is, so don't think your any sort of clever pointing out a single typo.

I can put part of the blame on American restauranteurs who peddle French as "fru-fru." That's about as accurate as an American going overseas and saying they're from Chicago and having to endure "Oh, Al Capone, bang bang! How 'bout some greasy fat pizza, hey der!"

And with all that said and done, alot of your favorite foods come from French cuisine and your dumb ass doesn't even know it. Like the bread your greasy Italian beef is slathered between and the cooking method the Italian-Americans used to produce your favorite dish. And fries? Although the french fry itself was an American adaptation, it was developed directly from french cuisine. It is the root of many popular dishes today that no longer carry the French term. That's why chefs start with French cooking techniques when they go to school.

Let me tell you something, you frog sucking douche bag.
yes, douche bag is french. I hardly live in a trailer as I gaze out of my North Shore mansion, pal.

I love Asian food, Italian food, and of course Chicago cuisine.

French food is for fru fru snobs with their nose in the air. I could give a rat's ass what was derived from French food. If you don't like being an American, please go fuck yourself. What's wrong with America is morons like you who can't even spell the word "ridiculous" and then think everyone is a jerk because someone doesn't like something they like such as fru-fru french food. Please make sure you change your panties after you eat it, because I am sure you will need to.

I've tried a lot of french food, at better restaurants like Cafe Bernard. Most of it sucks. Rates right up there with brown mush Indian dishes.

For crying out loud, would you people just get over yourselves? You are fighting over who likes to eat what! Talk about rIdiculous?!?!

Be glad you have enough to eat, and can afford to eat out.

First of all, I'm not actually fighting. I'm kind of entertained by VyvB who is just an idiot snob who got bent out of shape because she (got to be a broad, if not, a guy with a pussy) when I made up a list mocking french food.

I'm having a good time about it, while she/it takes exception that I think french food sucks and has obviously having a hard-on of some kind over it. Pretty funny.

If you dislike Antioch so much, and don't live here, why the need to comment on it?

Personally, I work on the North Shore, with many people who live on the North Shore, and based on the gossip they love to spout about their neighbors and all their kids' issues, I'm perfectly happy to stay in Antioch.

Exactly. I had the misfortune of living there for 3 years. There were some nice people there, but there were enough people like Seymore to make me never want to live there again. Unfortunately the "North Shore" continues to expand, like cancer.

The cancer is in Lake Marie, Pal. At least we can drink our water. Enjoy your second rate schools whole you dodge the hillbillies in their pick-up trucks.
