First of all, I rarely visit UPTOWN, and am not even sure the real boundaries. When I am on my own, it would take special motivation for a $20.00 cab ride or half hour streetcar trip. I have been to several of the well known and popular area restaurants, DICK & JENNY’S, JACQUES-IMO, along with the popular bars, COOTER BROWN’S, THE MAPLE LEAF, ROCK ‘N’ BOWL. All well and good for people with energy, enthusiasm, and patience. In my old age, those qualities are fast evaporating, in favor of a really good meal with special friends. Thus, when we tried out BOUCHERIE a couple years ago, on a drizzly, but mild evening, even sitting out on the porch dining area, we were thrilled with our meal! Now, I tend to return for some of those unique offerings, and am amazed at the reasonable pricing. Some of the included photos will illustrate their variety, but if you Google their menu, it will give you the best reference. Okay, one example; a signature dessert, KRISPY KREME BREAD PUDDING!! YEOW!!
