Bar Bouchon

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and sitting on the patio at Bar Bouchon was lovely. We were meeting someone who I had corresponded with for quite some time, but never met in person. He was better in person than through the written word – witty, charming and utterly delightful. My faithful photographer fell down on the job and forgot to take numerous pictures – too engrossed in conversation was his excuse.

To start NV Krug – no photo.

First Order of Misty Point and Umami Oysters – we ordered a second round.

Terrine de Foie Gras de Canard served with toasted baguette

Pate de Campagne – country style pate with watercress, cornichons and radishes

Sancerre from their list – no photo

Scrambled Eggs with summer white truffles

Moules au Saffran – Maine bouchot mussels steamed with white wine, mustard and saffron

Up to now we had shared all the various plates, but then decided to each order a main.

BYO Red Wine

Croque Madame – toasted ham and cheese sandwich on brioche, fried eggs and mornay sauce served with French fries

(This photo was taken at Bouchon in Yountville as our photographer forgot to snap a picture)

Poulet Roti – Roast Chicken with a corn succotash and chicken jus

Again the photographer forgot to snap a picture – this is a picture of take home and tonight’s dinner


BLT Sandwich

Then for our friend – take home sweet “goodies”

Bottom Line: a solid bistro meal with good service, a lovely ambiance and terrific company.

    This design is steller! You certainly know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
