French gastronomy and restaurants are not so many in Shizuoka City which tends more for Italian tastes, so it is always with an augmented pleasure when you can find a new one!

SN3O5796

La Table du Boucher (the Butcher’s Table) specializes, as its name indicates, in meat dishes found in all corners of France. But it also the particularity to double up as a wine bar!

SN3O5781

The other particularity, and a real boon for a wine bar, is that it is entirely non-smoking!

SN3O5778

The only problem I would have is because of the cozy atmosphere it is quite dark inside, making pictures difficult to take!

SN3O5777

The often changed menu is seasonal, eclectic and making great use of local and non-local products including a lot of home-made meat dishes!

SN3O5783

What did we have for our visit, then?
Oyster Gratin!

SN3O5787

Enormous seasonal salad!

BOUCHER-9

My recommendation:
Cassoulet with home-made pork sausages! Succulent!
I would have this any time with a heady red wine!

SN3O5790

Roasted quail!

SN3O5793

Linguine with fresh shiitake mushrooms!

Now, there two other dishes we couldn’t order that time for lack of stomach space I would like to introduce:

BOUCHER-12a

Apple and foie gras terrine!

BOUCHER-12b

Roasted poultry in fruit sauce and potato gratin!

SN3O5797

Expresso and chocolates to finish!

SN3O5799

Great chocolates, incidentally!

Look forward to other reports as I’m extremely tempted by the wine bar concept, too!
