BISTRO BOUILLABAISSE, FAMOUS $69
First, you hire a bunch of pros to build a killer broth, poach to order “Nova Scotia” lobster tails, jumbo shrimp, premium market fish, shellfish and calamari. Served with clever asides of herbed, garlic toast and aiöli.
Worth dying for. The richest food marriage. Colorado lamb, butter-poached Nova Scotia lobster and Hudson Valley foie gras, all on a brioche bread pudding. Served with a port demi-glace sidecar and a sip of Essensia. Sublime. “A Dionysian vision from the end of a pier in Maine.” The Bistro’s Feature Presentation at The James Beard House.
