What did we do before 2006 when that craving for the boulangeries of Paris went unanswered? It’s been 10 years since Chef Thomas Keller opened his first Bouchon Bakery in New York, located at The Shops at Columbus Circle in Time Warner Center, the unofficial gateway to Manhattan’s fashionable West Side. So today, when New Yorkers savor those croissants, tarts and macaroons – as well as the always-satisfying coffee – remember that we used to live in a world of coffee in cups with the image of the Parthenon and way-too-soft rolls slathered with something that we were told was butter (questionable).
To celebrate 10 years of culinary delights, on Sunday, March 13, Bouchon Bakery will celebrate their anniversary at Columbus Circle with a special 3-course menu priced at $49 featuring:
• Onion Soup: caramelized sweet onions with beef jus, country bread & comté cheese
• Salmon Tartare: salmon tartare, hard-boiled eggs, red onions, capers & crème fraîche, served with toasted croutons
• Pate de Campagne: country-style pâté with watercress, cornichons & radishes
• Moules au Safran: bouchot mussels, white wine, Dijon mustard, saffron
• Duck Leg Confit: brussels sprouts, mustard sauce
• Blanquette de Veau: Carolina Gold rice, glazed winter vegetables
• Crème Caramel
• Chocolate Marquise
Additionally, Chef Mike DeCicco has recently launched a special lunch menu for $25.00 available Monday to Friday highlighted by a choice of salad, soup for the first course and quiche, salmon or a “croque madame” for the main course.
