Left Bank Bistro
The sumptuous Friday-only bouillabaisse is worthy of Marseilles. Local white fish and surprisingly tender coral-colored mussels peek out of their shells which appear like the beaks of baby birds poking skyward. There’re also lovely clams and succulent shrimp floating with an array of vegetables in an aromatic charred fennel-saffron broth. A dollop of fire-roasted red pepper rouille sits between toasted grilled country baguette ends for making sure you don’t leave behind any of the transporting flavors. theleftbankbistro.com
