Fodor's Expert Review Restaurant Bouchard
Regional variations on French cuisine are the focus at this upscale yet laid-back establishment inside a gambrel-roof 1785 Colonial. Nightly specials are based on the fresh catch from Rhode Island waters, which may include scallops, swordfish, and clams. Sautéed duck breast with a ground-coffee crust, finished with a brandy-balsamic sauce, might be among the meat selections. With New and Old World selections, there's something on the wine list to enhance every dish. Kids must be older than seven to enter the dining room.
