Bar Bouchon is the perfect place to have a late lunch/early dinner. The patio is lovely – no pretense just sincere service with excellent bistro food.
The tables overlook a “park” (my husband has called it the most expensive park in Beverly Hills) with the Montage Hotel on one side and Bouchon on the other. Children flock on the grass, dogs and their owners stroll the area, students lie on the grass to study – just a peaceful lovely scene on a warm and sunny Los Angeles afternoon.
White wine from their list
Kushi Oysters – perfectly shucked – I was able to slurp each one without one hint of grit.
Tartare of blue eye tuna, haricot verts, strains of seaweed, gribiche sauce (capers, cornichons, shallots, champagne vinegar, mayo) with won ton crisps flecked with black sesame seeds – perfect as always and again consistency is the goal and always attained.
Quiche Florentine – one of the best quiches in the city
BYO Red Wine
Pate de Campagne – country style pate with cornichons and watercress – only Walter Manske can equal this pate.
Roast Beef, caramelized onions, red pepper, blue cheese on onion brioche – the Roast beef is brined for 12 hours with salt and aromatics. It is then cooked sous vide and finally seared – a moist and succulent beef. The brioche is made in house and was excellent. The combination of beef, onions, red pepper and cheese just a tasty combination.
