THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Jubilee Restaurant Review

: This always jammed new authentic French bistro generates enough din to swallow the jazz trio performing in a nook between dining room and bar. Casually clad guests, meantime, swallow with glee everything owner-chef Pascal Petiteau prepares. His Proven├žal-style fish soup comes with a rouille so sapid it can do double-duty as dandy dip for well made french fries. Moules are a specialty. A modest heap may be cooked with curry, garlic and parsley butter, herb vinaigrette, creamy chicken broth, or mushrooms and chives. Otherwise, Jubilee's is bistro fare at its most straightforward. Desserts don't always succeed, and the rather glum wait staff seems more attuned to a wake than a Jubilee.
