Chef Ilan Hall is known for serving some ironically sacreligious foods at his new Williamsburg outpost of The Gorbals-- think bacon-wrapped matzo balls. But his gefilte fish recipe has Jewish bubbe written all over it.  "This interpretation of gefilte fish is prepared more like a French mousseline," he explains "It will convert even the most vehement gefilte fish hater."
