Best Turtle Soup (2008)


Turtle soup was 19th-century New York's favorite dish, and no meal at 19th-century fave Delmonico's would be complete without a bowl of it chased with a dozen oysters. Today, it's hopelessly out of fashion everywhere except New Orleans. To find a great bowl here, go to Bayou, where the Louisiana-trained chef knows to make it dark, dense, and slightly oily.
