Lunch At Bouchon – Yountville

If you’re a foodie like me, you’ve definitely heard of one of the best chefs of our time, Thomas Keller. The French Laundry, his Michelin three star piece de resistance is on top of my food bucket list. With a 6 month wait list and extremely high price point, we opted for his best alternative, Bouchon.


Located in the heart of a cute little Californian wine town named Yountville, it’s pretty hard to miss. The red exterior gives it away.

Greeted by the friendliest of staff, we were escorted to our table. The perfect seats for a 180 degree view of the restaurant.


Starting with delicious cocktails, a shellfish tower and flawless deviled eggs, we were off to a great start.



Oh! Did I mention the bread? Knotted and shaped like leaves, served warm right on your table (literally, no plates!) it’s the perfect amuse bouche.

For the mains, R had the boudin noir (blood sausage), which comes on a bed of heart warming mashed potatoes and white wine poached apples.As for moi, I had one of the daily specials; Seared Sol with fingerling potatoes.

Both dishes were perfectly executed and somehow tasted like fall…

Although the desert menu looked appetizing, we had our minds set on something else. We skipped pudding at the restaurant for obvious reasons, and headed next door to the infamous Bouchon Bakery to pick up a set of their delicious macaroons.

Can you blame us?

    We tried to get into the French Laundry once too, but had no luck! I didn’t know about Bouchon! The meal looks fabulous Tamara!
    And I love your lace extender—I’ve been thinking of getting one for my dresses—is your adjustable on the straps?
