After a turn on Fox's Kitchen Nightmares with pugnacious British chef Gordon Ramsay, Le Bistro in Lighthouse Point has a fresh coat of aqua paint but not much else. Chef/owner Andy Trousdale's menu still reads like Frenchified resort fare from the Î?80s - duck egg Benedict, tuna tartare, caesar salad, grouper en papillote - which would be forgivable if not for the ham-handed execution. The grouper is mushy and sits on a nest of pallid, overcooked vegetables. Starters -- like goat cheese topped with lavender and bee pollen or grilled vegetable antipasto -- sound fine but arrive as little more than glorified hors d'oeuvre plates. And torchon au foie gras tastes like it has sat in the walk-in since filming wrapped on Ramsay's visit. Though by-the-glass options are cheap, the wine list is staid, and the décor is cold and stuffy. The nightmare, it seems, is far from over.
