Le Bouchon Restaurant Review: There's nothing contrived about Le Bouchon’s simple and elegant setting, and the focus at this neighborhood bistro is on the traditional French food. French music wafts through the room, and as beverages, you’ll find a wide selection of French beer, wine and apéritifs. Tables nestle close together, but this results in a pleasant, convivial buzz. Don't come here for experimentation; instead, expect “la cuisine de grand-mere,” meaning honest, home-style cooking. Classic dishes include onion soup gratinée, snails in garlic butter, braised veal shanks, duck confit, mussels in white wine, pork medallions stuffed with prunes, coq au vin and crème caramel, all prepared simply and correctly.
