Le Bouchon Restaurant Review: As the surrounding Pearl District has blossomed, Le Bouchon has retained its quiet integrity and loyal customers. The narrow room with booths is cozy and intimate and has a convivial buzz. French music wafts throughout as an undercurrent, and you’ll find a wide selection of French beer, wines and apéritifs. Don't come here for experimentation; instead, expect “la cuisine de grand-mere,” meaning honest, traditional French bistro cooking. Classic dishes include onion soup gratinée, country pâté, snails in garlic butter, braised veal shanks, duck confit, mussels in white wine, pork medallions stuffed with prunes, and a classic coq au vin, all prepared simply and correctly. Finish your meal with a homemade pastry or a selection from the cheese platter.
