Since Auguste Escoffier declared French cuisine the world’s finest in the early 20th century, the influence of the French kitchen has travelled the globe. From Montréal to Morocco to Vietnam, you can tour the world and find French flavors.
Imported by Michel Baudouin
Michel started life in a 200-year-old farmhouse in France’s Rhône Valley. His affinity for fine food and wine comes naturally — his father, Emile, was the village’s premier amateur winemaker. Mother Antonia’s way with a roast duck had neighbors and friends “coincidentally” dropping by at dinner time every Sunday.
Michel’s successes in the restaurant business began over twenty years ago in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, with honored restaurants Michel Restaurant and Le Chardonnay. His passion for cooking is second only to his love of family, friends and Formula 1 Racing.
Enjoy a meal from the mother country while in The Paris of the South! From traditional French Comfort Food to Parisian café cuisine, our menu reflects our passion for classic French food paired with our passion for the finest fresh ingredients, so easily obtainable from our surroundings.
The Food. The Service. The Ambiance. Welcome to Bouchon.
-Please note that our host will do everything in their power to accommodate your table request, but as humans are an unpredictable species, we may have to seat you elsewhere to avoid you waiting for a long time for your specific table.
-If you absolutely MUST be at a specific table, please include that in the notes section of your reservation; for instance, if you want to bring a furry friend along, or cannot physically ascend a staircase.
-Any seating labeled “Bar” or “Upstairs Bar” is indeed a seat at the bar, not a table.
-We will allow a courtesy 15 minutes from your reservation time until we give away your table. If you’re running late, please call us at 828.350.1140.
-We take credit cards to secure your reservation. If you are a no-call/no-show we charge your card $25 per person. We do understand things come up, so please cancel at least an hour and a half before your reservation.
-Bouchon will no longer accept reservations for parties larger than 6 people due to our small space and limited seating. If you have a larger group wanting to enjoy our French Comfort Food, please call our sister location, RendezVous. They will do everything they can to accommodate your larger party: 828.348.0909
Bouchon will strictly follow current CDC guidelines to keep everyone safe. Buncombe County is currently under a mask mandate. This means guests must wear a mask covering the lower half, from the nose down, of your beautiful faces upon entry, exit, and any time not seated at the table.
