Dover Sole

I absolutely adore DS and it's getting hard to find. I used to have it at the Oyster Bar at GCS but I don't think it's on the menu any more. Please help with restaurants that serve it!

  1. La Grenouille has it. Also saw it as a special at La Goulue a couple of weeks ago at dinner - it was almost $50, so we passed on it!

    1. Go to and enter a "food" search for dover sole. MP will scan all its menus to find who's got it. It does show up as a special from time to time in some restaurants, but that's harder to track.

      1. I still dream about the Dover Sole I had at BLT Fish in Union Square. Was one of the best pieces of fish I ever had (and probably most expensive as well).

        1. Dover sole is seasonal. In season, La Petite Auberge always has whole Dover sole on the specials menu. They do a superb job preparing it. It's one of our absolute favorite things to order there, and the last time we had it was about two weeks ago. It's best to call and check if it's available.

          1. I had it a few weeks ago at Daniel - it was divine. I have also seen it on the menu at the Four Seasons.
