MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Pressed-tin ceilings? Check. Brick-and-Dijon color scheme? Of course. Le Bouchon proffers the quintessential bistro experience, where straightforward French cooking never goes out of style and the regulars keep returning for more. The informal atmosphere gets convivially raucous as the night goes on with thirsty and hungry hordes lining the bar and petite dining room. Over in the kitchen, familiar and approachable favorites rule the menu: soupe à l’oignon, wearing its traditional topper of broiled Gruyère on a moist crouton, oozes and bubbles over the sides of a ramekin. And an ample fillet of saumon poché napped in beurre blanc is the very essence of simplicity. A lunch prix-fixe keeps the wallet light but belly full.
