The First Photos, Inside Bouchon & Bar Bouchon Beverly Hills

New, 12 comments

Yes, yes, the Beverly Hills outpost of Bouchon will look much like its predecessors but here is the proof. The resy line opened yesterday and, probably not a huge shocker but, Bouchon is already fully booked for four nights inclusive of November 18 so don't bother attempting a table for opening night. Also, while it looks like part of the Montage, it's not, and is actually located across the park from the Montage's main kitchen. Bouchon encompasses two levels, the smaller Bar Bouchon (Keller's first and only) on the ground floor which will open the second week of December and Bouchon the restaurant up above. Bar Bouchon will serve small plates and offer an extensive wine list.

Each floor has its own bar and dining room plus patio/terrace for outdoor seating. Guests enter from ground level (pictured above) to check in with the reservationist and loiter in the waiting room if necessary. After getting the green light, mount the stairs to reach the main dining space. First there is a "Champagne lounge" with plush seating, and off to the left is a long hall with potted plans and whimsical wall paintings (see above). This leads to the dining area which boasts Thomas Keller's signature nickel-plated bar, hot damn, a stunner. A smaller private dining room also exists and can seat up to 12. In the beginning, Keller sightings will not be rare as he will be around to oversee the restaurant and sign books at guests' request.

Rory Herrmann, Chef de Cuisine of both the Napa and Vegas outposts will also direct the kitchen in Beverly Hills. He will work alongside GM Greg Rowen, pastry chef Scott Wheatfill and head sommelier Alex Weil.
