Of all of the ingredients that every French person in the world can get anywhere, and the New York cook can't seem to find at all, chervil seems to be the most inconvenient... Sure, Garden of Eden and Whole Foods have it once in a blue moon, but does anyone know of a market or something anywhere that has it most of the time?
I wouldn't say "most" of the time, but Manhattan Fruit Exchange might be worth a call. If they don't have it, I am not sure who would. They've been my best bet when trying to find a fruit, vegetable, or fresh herb.
I've had the same experience as you. Usually have to use a more limited amount of tarragon as a substitute. In fact, that could be a whole separate thread, french ingredients that are hard to find in NY.
