Best Frisée Salad 2010
How do you know a bistro is good? Is it the frites? The onglet? The mussels in winey broth? Actually, the key to a great bistro is a fabulous frisée salad, the humble, crunchy pileup of bacon, lettuce, and egg. Though often compelling (who can resist those Gallic Bac-Os, lardons?), Bistro Rollin’s version offers addictive, tiny croutons, and vinaigrette so carefully pitched that the salad’s running egg yolk completes the perfect sauce.
