bar bou•chée (boo’ – shāy) n.

1. An authentic bouchon (boo’ – shôn)—a type of bistro that first appeared in 19th century Lyon, France serving simple, traditional, home-style French comfort food often called “cuisine de grand-mere”. 2. Small, casual, no-fuss bistro to relax, eat and be among friends. 3. A neighborhood place known to fill up with regulars and locals. 4. A place to call your own.

Inspired by our favorite Lyon bistros, our seasonal menu features French bistro classics with prices that are as comforting as the food. But it’s not just about great comfort food, we are known for our “barman’s” innovative cocktails and for our carefully selected and reasonably priced wines.  Whether you “just want a little something” or you want to satisfy a hungry appetite, Bar Bouchée is a Francophile’s delight.
