    Copied from my TR:

    The restaurant was not crowded at 7PM on a Tuesday before Thanksgiving, but I had to make a reservation for 2 since Bouchon uses Open Table and Open Table won't make a reservation for one.

    The complete dinner menu is located at:

    I had:

    Bread shaped like leaves, with butter and pistachios on the side

    *Petit Plateau ½ lobster, 8 oysters, 2 shrimp, 4 clams, 8 mussels.

    Note that they didn't serve horseradish with the Petit Plateau, and when I asked for it, the horseradish came with a warning, and I'm glad that my waiter warned me. It was by far the strongest horseradish I'd ever had. I needed VERY LITTLE on my oysters.

    *Gigot d’Agneau roasted leg of lamb with chickpeas, broccolini, eggplant & young carrots

    Crème Brulee

    All in all a wonderful meal, The Petit Plateau could have served by itself as a full meal, but I had to try the roast lamb.

    The Petit Plateau had two shrimp that were huge!

    The lamb was served medium, three slices that provided 12 pieces when quartered. The lamb was tender and very flavorable. The chickpeas I could've done without, but they did go well with the entree.

    My waiter asked if I wanted to have dessert, and I had to give the Creme Brulee a try. Served with a flat spoon, it was, like the rest of the meal, superb.

    A note that Bouchon charges for soft drinks by the serving. They use 12 oz. bottles. Beware if you have soda drinking kids.

    Thanks, DaiLun. Big fan of the joint, and the one in Yountville. I get a kick out of folks who laugh about French fare, and yet there it is -- simple, yet rich; seemingly minimal but so layered. Bistro is cooking without pretense, just straight ahead. So glad you had the experience and, again, thanks for reporting back to us.
