Corn And Crab Bisque In A Bread Bowl @ Vincent’s
Vincent’s didn’t invent corn and crab bisque, but it’s one of only a few restaurants that features the dish on its menu full-time. It’s good enough to stand on its own in a standard soup cup, but what makes most customers remember is is that the large serving comes out in a round French bread bowl. The bread dissolves into the soup and makes it even better. Some people eat the whole thing. The two main ingredients were made for one another, and the presentation is inspired. About the only adjustment one might make is a few drops of Tabasco.
