I'm going to miss the skate sandwich! Absolutely delicious, with that delicately flaking fish and the addictive sauce... nothing else like it that I've found. And the fig bread, the utterly perfect thing to have with cheese.
But it's true that after the market moved across the street to the old restaurant location, it always felt awkward. The food wasn't displayed to advantage (Bouley + steam tables?!), the layout was unclear, and the seating room quickly got dingy. I hope the good staff members (some of whom came from Payard when it closed) were offered spots at other Bouley restaurants!
