I don't normally post about restaurants, but it's their birthday, so I'm making an exception. Bouchee, a French-American Brasserie on Newbury St, opened its doors one year ago today.

The first thing about Bouchee I fell in love with was the interior. Designed by Steven Sousa of Sousa Design Architects, the restaurant is a modern interpretation of a classical French style. It is a bright, open, friendly space. The one thing that truly stands out is the lighting: from the huge, round pendants on the second floor, to the lit stairs and columns, the lighting is truly spectacular.

Of course, the food is just as great. I've eaten there twice and was quite impressed both times. The first time was for lunch: I had the Steak Frites, a 10 oz. sirloin strip with maitre d'hotel butter and pommes frites (French fries). The second time was for dinner: I had the Pork a la Milanese, a breaded, pan fried pork chop with a Pinot Noir reduction and a green apple salad.

The staff is incredibly friendly too. Which is where the real news is. Within the next few weeks, yours truly will be joining Bouchee as their newest Server. Please stop by and say hi!
