We have just returned from SW France (Pyrenees-Atlantique Department) and I had to come to Richmond on business. I had been here a year or so ago and loved it and I still do! It is better than ever in fact. I ate at the bar two nights in a row and after choosing among some wonderful French wines with the help of Olivier I selected the Cassoulet the first night and the Daube Provencal the second. I've had Cassoulet many times in Toulouse France and the one served at Bistro Bobette was just like Toulousienne Cassoulet. But the Daube! Wow. You have to try this beef stew especially with one of the red wines from southern France. It was full of flavor and is served with a dollop of truffle mac and cheese in the middle. Finished off the night with a glass of Armagnac. Will always go back to the Bistro when in Richmond.
Vive le Bistro Bobette!
