As the back of the menu so cleverly states; a bouchon is a small, friendly, neighborhood restaurant that serves up great cuisine using the best local products available. True to this, Le Bouchon du Grove is an authentic and exceptional French bistro. From the French speaking wait staff, to the very animated chef, Christian Ville, who pops out from time to time you may just forget you are in the Grove and not Lyon.
The food is superb. Come for breakfast served until 3pm, and have one of the fluffiest, perfect omelets. I recommend the goat cheese and tomatoe omelet. If you stop by for lunch or dinner, an excellent starter is the wonderful gratinée Lyonnaise (French onion soup). The steak sandwich is also delish. Coming for diiner? Remember that the fish is brought in fresh daily so you can’t go wrong in picking one. I once had the Chilean Seabass and every bite was heaven. Not in the mood for seafood? No problem. Try the carre d'agneau roti (roasted rack of lamb with Provence herbs) it is served warm and tender, with just the perfect amount of seasoning. Pair it with an amazing glass of wine. The waiters know best and this little spot boasts a great selection.
And who leaves a French restaurant without dessert? The crème brulee is outstanding but you just can't leave without trying the warm, flaky, Tarte Tartin (caramiles apple pie). Mmmmm. This place is pure food fabulousness.
