Le Bouchon in Cold Spring: Hudson Valley Restaurant Week 2011


Hey everyone it’s Healthy Chef Lady Angela Rivera.  I decided to go to Le Bouchon for lunch with a girlfriend of mine.  I was surprised at how quaint and cute it was.  Checkerboard table cloths and old wooden floors.  It was a neat place to sit and eat.

I started out with the pate.

Not the best I’ve had — the flavors were muddled. But the plate had the cutest little pickle I’ve ever seen.

My main entree I chose was the skate.

That I really enjoyed, it was served with capers and a wine sauce, sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes.

My girlfriend had the steak frites.

The steak was unfortunately overcooked but the french fries were awesome.

I was so jealous I didn’t order her dessert though.  She ordered the Grand Marnier mousse — and it is delicious. It’s worth the trip just for the dessert.  I kept trying to coax her into exchanging desserts with me.

It was a great drive and a very French spirit in there.  It’s also a great town to walk around on a nice day so eat up and enjoy!
