Proprietor Elizabeth Lemaire wants to share a Carmel favorite that lures locals and visitors with its chic style and neighborhood charm. Chef Benoit Petel prepares Modern French Bistro Cuisine with a Californian Coastal flair. Our friendly atmosphere buzzes with excitement and energy that makes you feel your dining in one of the small neighborhoods inside Paris.
Diners at the Bistro have a special advantage with the BouchÃ©e wine shop. Because of it, the restaurant can offer a much greater selection of bottles on its wine list and there is a tremendous flexibility in creating wine pairings for the chef’s menu items.
