        I had lunch today at Bouchon Bistro. I love dining there during the day. Good food, great atmosphere, good people watching. Iced tea is the best. I noticed that the mussels were not on the lunch menu. I'll have to inquire about that next time. No issue today as it was so hot and the chicken salad was very nice (albeit, not great).

        If you want to be able to hear yourself think [let alone be able to converse with your dining companion(s)], then definitely Bouchon.

          Does the consensus apply to lunch as well? Or Dinner?

            I prefer comme ca.... their cocktails are fun & tasty, their bubbly is decently priced and loved the croque there!!!

              They're both good - "better" is a function of what you like, what you want, and your points of reference. If you're from Paris, FR, I'd say neither and if you're from Paris, TX, I'd say either. Bouchon is perfectly executed, in a beautiful space smack in the middle of Beverly Hills, and will enable you to tell people you ate at a Thomas Keller restaurant if that's your thing. I prefer the location, the crowd, the drinks, and the hamburger at Comme Ca, so that's where I'd go for brunch if those were the only two choices. But either way you're going to have a good meal.

                Been to Bouchon B.H. and Yountville both in the last month and both have slipped a bit. Go to Comme Ça.
