First thing’s first, you’ve got a really gorgeous space (truly). I was smitten by the beauty of Bouchon at first sight. I went with my server’s suggestion and ordered the ever famous Croque Madame for breakfast, because there’s nothing like toasted ham and cheese on homemade brioche served with a fried egg and sauce Mornay. Your brioche WAS divine and the Croque Madame WAS quite delicious. In truth, I inhaled the thing in what seemed to be less than three bites. I am, however disappointed that for $18.95 my beautiful Croque Madame was surrounded by freezer french fries (confirmed by waitress). Not only was this very surprising and realistically overpriced (IMHO), but the fries themselves were worse than ones I could find at McDonald’s. I appreciate the thought and delicateness of the Croque Madame- everything from the flavor to presentation was perfect. Hope that for $18.95 I’ll be privy to hand cut fries next time. All in all, a positive dining experience and one that I’ll keep my foodie heart open to. I’m hopeful that next time I come back, things will be better.
Best, Brooke Eliason
