Bouchon Restaurant Review

: Thomas Keller brought his incarnation of a French brasserie to the masses, just a few blocks from The French Laundry, when he opened Bouchon back in 1998. Since then, diners have lined up to enjoy this quintessential American version of the Parisian experience. Chef de cuisine Michael Sandoval oversees the kitchen. The delicate fries are the best around, and the seafood dishes are first rate. Start off with a selection of immaculate oysters, continuing with duck confit, boudin noir or steak frites. Classic desserts include profiteroles, baba au rhum and crème brûlée. Bouchon stays open late, which is a definite plus, and rare in Yountville. For a simpler treat, try the Bouchon Bakery next door (closes in mid-afternoon) to experience the best of Keller's original concept.

Enjoyed the food

My trout with almonds and haricots verts was delicious. The braised short ribs (the special that evening) my friend ordered was just as good. Overall, a nice bistro dining experience; and the fact that the restaurant stays open late is fantastic, in my book.
