    Will you be honest in your assessment if you don't like the fresh variety? }:|

    I will be as objective about the Sole as Mike R is about Auberge Petite Anse.

    Sounds good as I may be having Dover Sole tomorrow nite here based on a recommendation from Kevin at La Voile. Of course yours may be a bit fresher. :)

    if he truly doesn't see the difference, than his taste buds, at least in terms of seafood, are even more unsophisticated than I originally thought..LOL

    Andy, if you get the opportunity while in Boston, try Aquitaine. www.aquitaineboston.com

    The mussels are divine and I do not use that word lightly. My meal there was one of the best I've ever eaten.

    Got to Fishworks too late for the Dover Sole, so we settled for lemon sole. Very fresh and tasty. Highly recommend Fishworks if you are in London.

    the fish and chips in England is mostly boiled dogfish which then gets battered and fried....they buy dogfish from the U.S. by the metric ton @50 cents a pound....

    Connected on the sole last night after reserving it. At market price they were 30 and 33 BPS, which is nearly St. Barth prices! The lemon sole was 13.50 BPS for comparison. What a delectable taste!

    Also discovered a new small batch gin and vodka distilled in London proper. Quite tasty!

    After your post we too went to dinner and I had a remarkable Dover Sole. Thought of you feasting London with each subtle smack of my lips. Amy

    I called the place in London and although they regrettably do not have any fresh Dover Sole on hand at the moment...they do have some great frozen mahi and wahoo on the menu this week..... }:|
