Lautrec Bistro
East Village
There’s not much to love at this Mediterranean bistro, named for the Toulouse Lautrec lithographs hanging on the walls. Tunisian chef Rafik Bouzgarrou’s menu includes dishes like a generic cucumber-tomato-and-chickpea salad and salmon linguine—a mess of chewy noodles and off-tasting fish. The North African–inflected burger may be the restaurant’s only saving grace: The lamb patty, seasoned with cumin, harissa, and herbs de Provence, is served on a house-made bun with feta and smoky roasted red-pepper aioli. With a pile of crisp fries, it makes for a satisfying meal…provided you don’t order anything else.
