Boucherie
Venue says French classic, timeless bistro favorites, and our new seasonal menu! Come visit our new location at 225 Park Ave.

Naturally, meat is the focus of this 320-seat West Village bistro (boucherie is French for "butcher shop"). A dedicated butcher counter sources cuts from big-name purveyors (Pat LaFrieda) and smaller local farms to be used in composed dishes from Pastis alum Jerome Dihui: an herb-crusted rack of venison, a for-two côte de boeuf with bone marrow, and a dry-aged burger topped with caramelized onions and aged Gruyère. Beyond the beef, you can find French classics like escargots gratiné (roasted snails in garlic butter and béchamel) and moules a la Normande (mussels in cream with mushrooms and bacon), as well as house-made pastas, like ricotta cavatelli with braised rabbit and root vegetables. The sprawling space takes cues from the Belle Époque, with framed mirrors, mosaic floors and a large wooden bar overseen by bartender Anthony Bohlinger (Maison Premiere, Seamstress), who turns out French-riffing cocktails (a mescal-and-Suze Franco-Mexican War) and absinthe drips.

This spot just 8 months in is really a nice mix to tacky big patio spots. Not only impressed with the food and wine list, but the happy hour cocktails are très bon! The steak sandwich was excellent as was the steak tartare. Great decor and team running the place . Bon appétit!


Very nice experience that I had at Boucherie.

Nice decor, awesome outside seating, and the staff is so friendly and kind from the door to the table!.

And of course the most important part, THE FOOD, very authentic french items on their menu, but I had to pick one so I choose the salmon, that is served pan seared and some asparagus, fennel and cherry tomatoes with a lemon hint, very nice combination I loved it! I pared it with a nice glass of sancerre, god I felt like I was in Paris for a moment. So congratulations to the chef, I will definitely come back again to try more awesome food and warm service very good job Boucherie! Will also recomend you for sure

Great atmosphere and service! Perfect place for the meat lovers!

Must try:

- Escargot

- NY Strip (dry_aged, bone in)

Beautiful ambiance!


TheOne of the most beautiful place I've ever seen. Steak here is a must. Great selection of wines( not very expensive) and knowledgeable staff. I stayed at the bar and enjoyed every second. Highly recommended.

Boucherie transported me back to the time I was in Paris years ago with my cousin. With a classically French interior, it reminded me very much of being in a French bistro and it was a wonderful dining experience. 


For appetizers, we chose the French onion soup and steak tartare. Two great appetizers and both classically French with one being a comfort staple and the other being a satisfying bite. 


On to the entrees, my friend chose the duck confit while I went for the filet mignon. The duck confit had frisee and crispy truffle potatoes. The duck had a nice crispy exterior and paired with the frisee and potatoes, each ingredient worked together. As for the filet mignon, it was cooked and seasoned to perfection especially because it was a Pat LaFrieda center cut. It was juicy and with the truffle butter was a beautiful bite worth savoring slowly. We ended the meal with two French desserts, a tart tatin and crepes suzette. Both were a great cap to a great meal.  


Check out Boucherie for an authentic French cuisine experience and ambiance. You won't regret it. 


Happy eating and remember: Don't deny, satisfy!


Great restaurant, even better bar, guys are awesome, they gave me great recommendations.

I eat NY strip with a bone and drink boucherie old fashioned, highly recommended!


boucherie is one of the most incredible french restaurant i've ever went. The meat is great, i recommend the famous steack frites or chateaubriand , or the salmon if you rather have fish. They also have a large selection of wine !


I came here after seeing Boucherie was participating in Restaurant Week on Time Out. Boucherie is an amazing addition to the already well established food scene in the West Village. I can tell why this place is famous for its meat cuts--I had a massive tomahawk rib eye, it is served pre-sliced above a bed of vegetables. I was lucky enough to sit on the second floor patio which just added to the overall NY experience. It is a little pricey-but you definitely get what you pay for--thanks Time Out!


Beautiful addition to our neighborhood! Amazing cocktails and romantic ambiance!


worst waiter experience of my life here.. horrible.. even when I compare it to all the "3rd world" countries I've been to ..
