    Thank you! This goes on the list for a must try.
    By the way – are your santons made by Lise Berger?

    Hi Lizziee

    I recognized the santons…we first purchased from her 20 years ago and have 5 of her santons….I will send you an hysterical one we have of an old sot…with a wine bottle in his hand….we t her at her home in the south of frame and she is so very lovely. That was 10-12 years ago. The chef is similar toe one we have , but the facial expression is different. That is what I love about her. Each is different

    Thank you for the review of Bouchon. We have plans now to go there. Your server Alex was our favorite at palate! I love your blog and wrote to you about the persimmon pudding….found you on a search for persimmon pudding

    Hi Lizzie
    It seems you ordered from the Bouchon Bistro menu, not the Bar bouchon menu…correct?

    Karen, would love to see your pics of the santons. We ordered from the brunch menu plus the bar bouchon menu.
