There is hardly a more lovely place in Los Angeles to linger over a salad and glass of Sancerre than Bar Bouchon, at the Montage in Beverly Hills. The downstairs diminutive version of Thomas Keller’s Bouchon upstairs, Bar Bouchon is a charmer with a simplified menu and friendly staff. There are few places to sit inside, but trust me, you won’t want to. Grab an outside table and on a splendid sunny afternoon, you’ll feel transported to a French cafe.
