Chef Thomas Keller of New York City's Per Se and the Napa Valley's The French Laundry established this grand and majestic bistro in Beverly Hills. Everything about Bouchon makes you feel pampered. Look for filtered Norwegian water served at every table, twig-shape baguettes made fresh in the kitchen, and an expansive wine list celebrating California and French wines. This foodie scene embraces celebrities and high-profile chefs and locals. Start with the classic onion soup that arrives with a bubbling lid of cheese, or the salmon rillettes, which are big enough to share. For dinner, there's steak and frites, roasted chicken, steamed Maine mussels, and a delicious grilled croque madame. For a sweet bite, order an espresso and the profiteroles or the bite-size brownies served with homemade vanilla ice cream.
