What better place to have a late lunch/early dinner at Bar Bouchon on Christmas Eve. The weather was beautiful and the patio an inviting sunny casual spot to indulge in French inspired culinary delights.
Wine from their list
Misty Point and Kumamoto Oysters
oeuf poache aux lentils – ragout of duck confit, French green lentils, poached hen egg, root vegetables (rutabaga, carrots, turnips), jus from the confit and brioche crouton, jus from the confit acted as the sauce – this was absolutely delicious
Just look at that beautiful runny yolk.
BYO Red Wine
Ris de Veau – crispy sweetbreads, Tokyo turnips, Brussel sprout leaves, black trumpet mushrooms and sauce gremolata – another perfect dish executed with percision
Steak “Rossini” – Snake River Farms “eye of the rib”, chicken liver and foie gras mousse, brioche crouton, wilted spinach and glazed sweet potatoes – as good as it looks
What a perfect place!
