L'Etoile lobster bisque the best ever - recipe?

norcalmom | Nov 4, 201801:51 PM    

In the early 80's my older brother treated me to a dinner at L'Etoile in San Francisco on Nob Hill. He told me that the lobster bisque was a specialty and we both ordered a bowl of it to start our dinner. It was my first lobster bisque and it was amazing! I'm sure the rest of the dinner was lovely, but I will never forget that lobster bisque. I have tried lobster bisques whenever they are on a menu, but none has come close to L'Etoiles rendition - creamy but not to creamy and intense lobster flavor, perfectly balanced.

The restaurant closed many years ago, but I wonder if anyone might have that recipe?
