The French touch. For some real French, Michelin-worthy meals look no further than Le Bouchon in Crows Nest. Rather than the regular Parisian-style cafes, Le Bouchon focuses on another French region: Lyon, the gastronomic capital of the world. ‘Bouchon’ has a double meaning in French; not only does it mean ‘cork’, but it also the name used to describe authentic Lyonnaise brasseries, famous for serving up some rather unusual specialities. The menu at Le Bouchon is strongly rooted in French tradition and possibly not so much for vegetarians... Think sautéed lamb kidneys, pan-fried black pudding, calves liver and pomme puree, twice-cooked lamb neck and cassoulet of confit duck leg. Le Bouchon does a roaring trade throughout the day, with breakfast, lunch and pre-dinner aperitif offerings. While the food may be French, the service is anything but – here, you’ll only be greeted by smiles! Best dish: Twice cooked lamb neck, zucchini and eggplant millefeuille and anchovy beurre blanc.
