We went to Bouchon recently with friends who spoke highly of it. They have the main restaurant and a separate room that can be private if the numbers, and the occasion, warrants. We were seated in the separate room which gave off a nice intimate atmosphere. We started with a bottle of sparkling wine (Brut), French onion soup, crab cakes, and the mushroom tart combo. All were first rate, but the crab cakes especially so. Everyone brags about how "meaty" their crab cakes are. These weren't just "meaty", they were all meat. We progressed into duck, lamb, and sea bass. Again all were good. The duck was done two ways, confit and grilled breast, but here the lamb was the star. So good my friend could order nothing else, despite the fact that he'd had it before. With dinner we switched to a Fess Parker Pinot Noir. Yum. Only jarring note of the evening was when the waitress tried to up sell us into a lesser wine. But we dodged that bullet and moved into dessert - bread pudding with locally made ice cream and creme brulee - with coffees for those who could handle it at night. While it might not rate a Michelin star, this is haute cuisine and this restaurant holds its own with good cooking anywhere on the planet. I would recommend this place for business, friends, and couples looking for a romantic dinner. Families with small children looking for good value - be advised - this is a special occasion place.
