After being ill last week, I longed for the weekend to come and wanted to get away. A week laden with heavy work, antibiotics, a pathetic Friday dine-in experience and M's sleepless night, we needed salvation.
The Bouchon Bistro in Yountville reset our weekend, made things right and we could not have made a better decision than this. Let's just say, the rest of the weekend was romantic and fabulous.
Confit de Canard - duck confit with Brussels sprouts and mustard sauce
My dish: Steak Frites - Flat iron steak with caramelized shallots and truffled fries
M's dish: Poulet Roti - roasted chicken with trumpet mushrooms, whole grain mustard spaetzle and butternut squash
Dessert: Sorbet aux Fruits: pineapple
Bouchon Bistro is located at: 6534 WASHINGTON STREET | YOUNTVILLE, CA 94599
An hour and a half drive from San Jose, California, the restaurant is worth every minute of the drive if you are looking for some genuine quality time, superb experience and help in turning what could be a drab of a weekend to a fab one.
