Chicago Restaurants

Le Bouchon

Updated 06/11/2013

Fodor's Review

The French comfort food at this charming-but-cramped bistro in Bucktown is in a league of its own. The onion tart has been a signature dish of owner Jean-Claude Poilevey for years; he also does a succulent sautéed rabbit and a definitive salade Lyonnaise (mixed greens topped with bacon croutons and a poached egg). Save room for the fruit tarts. And don't attempt Le Bouchon on a Saturday night without a reservation.

Like eating in Paris

The waiter was fun. He made our night more enjoyable. This bistro is very small. Reservations are mandatory. But, the food and atmosphere are wonderful. The steak and pomme frites, onion tart,duck for two, and profiteroles were to die for. It is a charming little place.
