Must try: Beignets de Brandade de Morue, Quiche
Bouchon is housed at the Venetian and is known for its clever interpretations of classic French bistro cuisine.
Thomas Keller is a food icon and eating at Bouchon, which is based on his Napa Valley bistro, was one of the most anticipated events of my trip to Vegas.
Unfortunately my experience turned out to be a rather lackluster one. I think it was more to do with the service versus just the food.
Our server was rather edgy which really took away from the kind of comfort and ease I expected the evening to present.
The food was definitely good but nothing blew me away. I thought the appetizers proved to be better than the entrees. The quiche was amazing as were the cod fritters.
However, overall I was disappointed as I had much higher expectations from a Thomas Keller restaurant. I would go back to give it a fair chance – perhaps for lunch next time.
Here is some of what we ate:
