Bouche

What has been the experience of other 'Hounders regarding Bouche on Tchoupitoulas? First I thought it was just sort of an odd place, but now that I got charged $14.25 for a gin and tonic while sitting at the bar, I know I'll never be back. These owners need to get a clue.

    I could not agree with you more. I would bet money on the fact that they will not be in business by next year. I also hear that the food is not that great. When they get realistic about prices, they might make a profit.

      just checked out the website, it's pretty bare:

      menu:

      chef profile:
      http://www.bouchenola.com/chef.html

      ...that's not good!

        We've had both dinner and drinks at Bouche and we'd agree some of the pricing is a bit off on drinks. The food is spot on for what you get, but we'd venture to say part of the problem is that their "well" brands are other people's "call" or "premium" brands according to the bartender. I don't quite agree with "getting a clue" though. We just know that when we go to Bouche we don't expect the same low budget night as we'd get with some other local watering holes. Expensive yes. Expected yes.

          Worth it, decidedly no, IMHO.

            Lol, I'm guessing that's why we've got options when it comes to cocktails and cuisine.
