Show 35, July 13, 2013: Dining discoveries of the week with Chef Jet, and Producer Andy

Marche Moderne Bouillabaisse WeekProducer Andy’s pick of the week is Marche Moderne’s Annual Bouillabaisse Week on now nightly until July 18th. All of the fish used in this iconic seafood stew from Provence is flown in from the South of France under the watchful eye of Chef / Proprietor Florent Mareneau. He is one of the most accomplished French chefs cooking in the West. There are special aperitifs and French Rose selections available to compliment the meal.

Reservations suggested at 714.434.7900 or go to Marche’s Moderne’s website.

Jet is frequently asked for a solid recommendation for Northern Thai food. As it happens his Mother, Mary, is from that area.

Khao Soi at Spicy Thai BBQJet suggests The Spicy BBQ Restaurant in the Little Armenia neighborhood of East Hollywood. It’s a small place (15 seats) so reservations are advised. They do not have a beer and wine license so it BYOB. Like most family-owned Thai restaurants it’s cash only.

Two standout dishes are khao soi and Northern-style larb.
