Bouchon

Sigh, another food post, I eateth too much... rubbing buddha belly. L and I could easily pass for sisters. So we pretended to be the Chinese version of Paris and Nicky Hilton and strolled down the boulevards of Beverly Hills... and ended up at Bouchon, Thomas Keller's new gig in Tinseltown.

Pretty place setting... and pretty girls :-)

First up - seafood tower... they gave us some really good oysters. I particularly loved the little ones to the right of the tower, you know the ones with squiggly fringes... I think they are called Mikimoto or some thing  like that.

Fennel salad with figs... pic out of focus, my bad.

Dessert, shockingly, we were stuffed after the seafood tower. Very very good cream custard and very very good chocolate-y thingies. Afterward, we walked off the calories by taking a tour of the back kitchen, we then asked the front desk if we could become part time veggie cutters... or bus girls :-)

Mikimoto is pearls! Kumamoto is oysters. They are my favorites too.

Is there a Bouchon Bakery too? If there is, go try the macaroons!!! Yummy.

Thanks for the clarification Pei. They had a full time patisserie chef, but did not have a separate bakery.
