Now Serving: Bouchon Bakery is Open!
As of today, you and you and you (and your little dog, too) can stock up on treats at Bouchon Bakery. The baked and packaged goods offshoot of legendary chef and restaurateur Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bistro is situated in a cozy little cranny adjacent to Bar Bouchon, at the base of the majestic stairs that lead you up to the Bistro.
The Bakery, which joins its sibling outposts in Yountville, New York City, and Las Vegas, is starting off with a menu of basic proven winner items, like croissant, sticky buns, tarts, macarons, cookies, and their signature chocolate "bouchon" (cork). Each Bouchon Bakery also has its own exclusive signature pastry; in Beverly Hills you can order the Kouign-amann, which was described to us as a croissant meets an "Elephant ear"--basically it's flaky-doughy layers of buttery goodness. What more do you need to know?
Savory lunch-able items include sandwiches served on Bouchon's delicious baked-upstairs breads, as well as salads, are available. If you want to splurge, we spotted a Foie Gras Terrine in the cold case for $55 (hey, who said Keller veers towards the pricey? Oh, oops). Otherwise, you'll find the coffee bar beverages and sweet treats on par with your favorite high-end cafe.
Oh, and your little dog, too? Yes: There are doggy biscuits available for purchase for your pampered pooch. (You'll forgive us if we didn't sample those.)
