Fodor's Expert Review Bouchon

$$$ Downtown Asheville French

A French-style bistro, Bouchon ("cork" in French) serves simple Gallic comfort food such as steak frites, bouillabaisse, and a version of chicken cordon bleu in a casual, bistro setting. The owner is from France, and the restaurant (no reservations) fills up due to its prime location on Lexington Avenue.
