We had a very enjoyable dinner at Bouchard. The restaurant was full for Thanksgiving weekend and we had no trouble with our open table reservation. Staff was attentive and made great suggestions - like a sauterne with the foie gras appetizer. The sole was as good as any we have ever had - the sorrel beurre blanc was perfectly prepared.
