Shellfish platters, pâté, salt cod beignets, steak frites, steamed mussels, escargots, and other bistro basics are on the menu at this authentic-looking French bistro reimagined in the Napa Valley — and the fact that the man who created Bouchon Bistro in 1998 (four years after launching The French Laundry) is Thomas Keller means that it’s all very, very good. The watchword here, however, isn't "innovation." Bouchon is about traditional fare done right, like year-round specials including poulet rôti roasted with English peas, garden lettuce, bacon lardons, and chicken jus; truite amandine with toasted almonds and beurre noisette; and gigot d’agneau with boulangère potatoes. The boudin blanc with potato purée and dried French plums is simply amazing.

Some say no one in the U.S. does a better job with French bistro fare duck confit, steak frites, bacon and onion quiches, croque-madame and towering plates of chilled, raw shellfish.

Transport yourself to Paris - and see if you can't turn on your charm and steal a meal from the maitre'd. Either the one from here or the Laundry.

Bone marrow app. Compared to even the bev hills location, this dish sings perfection. Most marrow apps are too salty but this one is remarkably well balanced with hints of citrus, garlic and capers.

We all love truffle fries, but if a restaurant like Bouchon can enslave with its poulet rti you can only imagine the pleasures of other French classics like Boudin Blanc and Coquilles St. Jacques.

Go hearty w/ boudin blanc or pan-seared skate, or light w/ toasted barley salad. Dessert is a must: crme caramel is perfect. Green Guide Editor
