Looking for a place to have great bouillabaisse in the city.
I really love the bouillabaisse at Pearl Oyster Bar. It's always a very difficult toss up for me whether to have the bouillabaisse or lobster roll. The latter usually wins out, but on the few times I have had the bouillabaisse it has been super.
Now that you mention it, my husband also really likes their bouillabaisse. I always get the lobster roll.
I can confirm that the Pearl makes an amazingly good bouillabaisse, one of the best I've ever had. The rouille on the croton is perfect.
Chez Napoleon on west 50th. Very rich! And the kindly waitress will mix in the rouille for you.
I've read some raves about the one at Le Gigot - haven't tried it there myself, but love the restaurant.
That was me-can confirm the bouillabaisse at Le Gigot is fantastic. As it's right next door to Pearl, we should do a side by side comparison.
That would be fun!
Wanted to add - I noticed on Saturday that Le Gigot is offering a three course, $45 prix fixe - nice selections, including bouillabaisse.
