Bar Bouchon – Beverly Hills

Bar Bouchon is now open continuously from lunchtime through dinner. No reservations, but there is table dining outside and bar seating inside. On a lovely, warm afternoon in Los Angeles, there is no better place to lunch. The tables overlook a “park” (my husband called it the most expensive park, recently created) with the Montage Hotel on one side and Bouchon on the other. Bar Bouchon has a limited menu, but there are still plenty of options.

The “park”

First wine bought from their list

Bagaduce Oysters from Maine – at Bouchon upstairs they have an assortment of different kinds of oysters. Bar Bouchon features just one kind, but it changes daily.

Tartare of blue fin tuna, pickled red onion, haricot verts, strains of seaweed, gribiche sauce with won ton crisps flecked with seeds – delicious

Snails in garlic-parsley butter topped by puff pastry – this is an absolute must order

The puff pastry flipped

The snail about to be eaten

BYO Red Wine

Tartiflette, russet potatoes, bacon and Reblochon – actually this was a “potato pancake” with crispy shredded potatoes and onions, topped with soft Reblochon cheese, bacon and a frisee salad – another winner

Poached hen egg on toast rounds with a ragout of French green lentils with diced garlic sausage – as we were splitting all dishes, my husband asked for 2 poached eggs – no problem!

The lovely runny egg yolk

Apple tart – we asked for no ice cream

Espresso and Coffee rounded out the lunch. I heartily recommend both Bar Bouchon and Bouchon.
