I finally got around to seeing for myself what all the hype was surrounding the much-anticipated Bouchon Bistro in Beverly Hills. The legendary Thomas Keller has planted his newest restaurant right next to the Montage on Canon Drive; a great location in my opinion. I'm not sure that a grand staircase is a necessary mode of entry into Bouchon, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the relaxed atmosphere upstairs. The mosaic floors were my favorite. I know I referred to the atmosphere as "relaxed", but it must be said that everything is on point at Bouchon. With the Keller stamp on the two-story restaurant, you would expect nothing but the best. This French brasserie boasts classic bistro favorites, a raw seafood bar and seasonal dishes on the menu - everything sophistically executed to perfection. Everyone in the fam agreed we would be back for more!
Enjoy the dishes... in French ;)
