We compute numerically the cellular shape expected for the directional solidification of CBr4, at velocities far above the threshold for the Mullins-Sekerka instability. Our cell has a smooth tip plunging to a deep narrow channel which ends with a small liquid bubble. Our results are compared to the experimental findings of S. de Cheveigne, C. Guthmann, and M. M. Lebrun [J. Phys. (Paris) 47, 2095 (1986)].
