Bouchon Yountville Reviews
nice french bistro Jun 07, 2008
As i have never been to french laundry, i really can't say that bouchon is the poor man's version. but i am told that it is. so there.
that being said, bouchon was still somewhat pricey. i really wanted to try the foie - but at $47 for 5 oz, i decided to pass. so instead, i had the pate, which was rich and good.
i also tried a friend's watercress and endive salad, which was crunchy and fresh.
i had the slow cooked pork short ribs with a lot of legumes. the beans, i could do without. but, the pork was tender, soft and definitely tasty.
btw, the names of the dishes were in french but i can't spell in french much less say it properly so i just described the dishes we had using the main ingredients.
i tried my friend's croque madame (ok, so that i know in french) - ham and cheese sandwich (on brioche) with an egg on top. this was definitely rich and delicious and creamy. the fries were good although not the best fries i ever had.
we passed on the dessert and opted to go to the bouchon bakery next door.
if you are in the area, you gotta try bouchon.
