In November 2009, Chef Thomas Keller returned to Southern California after almost 20 years to bring his renowned Bouchon Bistro cuisine to the city of Beverly Hills. The restaurant, located just two blocks from the famed Rodeo Drive and situated adjacent to the beautiful Beverly Canon Gardens, offers guests both the grandeur of a soaring interior space designed by the award-winning firm of Adam D. Tihany or the tranquility of an urban oasis with its second floor terrace overlooking the gardens.
Now, why not enjoy this magnificent place for Christmas? Whether your planning a holiday party or simply looking for a place to enjoy Christmas dinner, Bouchon has just what you need to make your spirits bright this season.
Celebrate the holiday with the specialty of the house. This year’s peppermint and cranberry-orange macarons are now available in $16 six-packs. Other flavors include the Snowflake Shortbread, Gingerman and Snowman cookies, Bouchon’s sticky buns and eight-inch apple pies. No one in Southern California serves a more decadently-rich Bûche de Noël than Bouchon. Theirs is made the French way, with chocolate Genoise, sublime Valrhona chocolate caramel mousse, gianduja crémeux and candied hazelnuts. The large log serves 4-6, while mini versions are just right for individual noshing or gifting.
For the first time, Bouchon Bistro will be open Christmas Day for a special dine-in menu ($80 per person, $40 for kids 12 and younger). The three-course dinner will include entrée offerings including Soupe aux Champignons de Pari (mushroom soup), Foie de Volaille (chicken liver mouse with toasted brioche), Standing Rib of Prime Beef with gratin of cauliflower and Gruyère cheese, Long Island peking duck breast a la orange, and Chestnut Agnolotti with roasted winter squash and honey poached cranberries. Dessert will include all the bakery’s best treats including, of course, a classic Bûche de Noël.
