Baril's First Friday Bouillabaise with Georges Perrier

Chef/owner Michael Franco proudly presents a classic French bistro experience enhanced by his mentor the legendary Georges Perrier. Starting on Friday, March 3rd, this new signature event on the first Friday of every month will have a special addition to the menu: a traditional Proven├žal bouillabaisse prepared by Perrier and Baril chef Ken Wallace, alongside atmospheric live music.

The dish is served family style and includes a saffron broth, mussels, red snapper, clams, shrimp and potatoes served with slices of grilled baguette and rouille.
