After going over my A to Z archives recently, I found out that Bouchon Bistro is my most visited restaurant. It was fitting that when we headed to Vegas, we went to our favorite stop yet again!
To see my past posts, including one of my favorite chicken & waffles dishes, see here: #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5.
We started with the famous epi bread, a delicious accompaniment to many of their dishes.
Starting with a cocktail!
Terrine de Foie Gras de Canard
served with toasted baguette
Rillettes aux Deux Saumons
fresh & smoked rillettes served with toasted croûtons
Salade de Tomates
heirloom tomatoes, ricotta salata & garden lettuces with basil vinaigrette
Beautiful, colorful dish, and amazing!
Escargots à la Bourguignonne
Burgundy snails, parsley-garlic butter & Bouchon Bakery puff pastry
Gnocchi à la Parisienne
sautéed gnocchi & seasonal vegetables
Pâtes du Jour
fresh hand-made pasta: Campanelli with mushrooms in a white wine cream sauce
This dish was fantastic, and would be an amazing addition to the full time menu. Thankfully for my dinner pals, I was in a sharing mood. 🙂
Espadon Poêlé Provençal
pan-seared swordfish with pepper stew, fennel bulb, summer squash & niçoise olive tapenade
Peach Melba Sundae
Orchard peach, vanilla diplomat, raspberry sherbet
Verrine de Fruits à Noyaux
brown sugar custard with Frog Hollow apricots, fresh cream & warm biscuit
This dessert was my favorite of the two. The biscuit was buttery and delicious, and a perfect sweet partner to the tart apricots and luscious cream.
Basically, there’s no question about why this is the restaurant I have written about most over the past couple of years.
