Le Bouchon

Has anyone eaten here? What are your thoughts?

  1. woops! should have mentioned that it's in Portland on the west side.

      1. I found it to be pretty good on two visits, but on dishes where Carafe has something comparable (duck confit, for example), that Carafe's version is quite a bit better. Carafe is a bit more "modern" and creative with their menu, Le Bouchon seems to stick closer to classic dishes and preparations.

        1. Our one and only visit was about a year ago and we were so disappointed in the bland uninteresting food that we have not gone back.
          I too think Carafe is much better.

          1. Wow, thanks for dredging those up. Those were two nice meals. Haven't been back since...maybe we will at some point.

            I really like Carafe too and Pascal provides a more interesting and more often changing menu...but there's room for Le Bouchon in this town. Lord knows there are a bazillion Italian places and twice as many Thai places in town. ;o)
