After receiving training from Michelin-starred restaurants as Nobu and French Laundry, the owner and head chef of the Bistrot de Yountville presents French cuisine without fuss. The restaurant opened in 2009, at a time when the trend of chefs-as-owners was on the rise in Cheongdam. This place has since garnered many devoted regulars and established a firm reputation for its quality French cuisine. The classic red exterior, which stands out among the sleeker designs in vogue these days, and its elegant interior coupled with lovely tableware lend to the feeling that you might be dining at a restaurant somewhere in Paris, rather than in Cheongdam. The sense of intimacy at Bistrot de Yountville is its greatest virtue. The lunch course with three to four dishes is a great deal at 30–40,000 won, the result of cutting down on superfluity and concentrating on the food itself. From the hors d’oeuvre to dessert, each and every dish is well worth your attention. Bistrot de Yountville is also a excellent place to take a date.
