Even though we had just returned from Yountville, we decided to try Bouchon Beverly Hills again. Yes, the ambiance is different, but the food is spot on.
White wine – bought
Bagaduce Oysters from Maine, Fanny Sweet Carraquette Oysters from New Brunswick, Canada and Golden Mantle and Fanny Bay Oysters from British Columbia – great slurping oysters
Tuna Tartar – cubes of tuna not diced, with pickled fennel, orange segments, arugula, mango sauce – I have never had this preparation at Bouchon in Yountville. I really liked the citrus component.
BYO Red Wine
Country pate – chicken, veal and turkey wrapped in bacon, cornichons, thinly sliced radish and Dijon mustard – excellent
Boudin Noir – blood sausage with potato puree and caramelized apples – as good as in Yountville
Perfect Christmas Eve lunch.
