When asked what makes Bouche romantic, chef/owner Charles Dale has a simple answer: "France = Romance!" This intimate bistro's soft cream walls accented with red which Dale calls "the color of passion and love," and soft lighting set the perfect stage for your romantic dinner. Request one of the corner tables, the most romantic in the house, for your lovers' dinner. What's the most romantic dish on the menu? The Seafood Platter, a potpourri of shell fish that includes jumbo prawns, seasonal oysters (you know what they say about these) and Dungeness crab. Couples can feed each other these tasty morsels. Order your favorite champagne and the scene is complete. For dessert: the Profiterole au Chocolat. Most romantic event yet: a proposal. The future groom arranged for a neon sign that said "MARRY ME," lit at a prearranged time. Dale said the house went wild. "Luckily, he added, "she said 'yes!'"
451 West Alameda Street
Santa Fe, NM 87501
- Romantic Dining: "Dale suggests that if the restaurant is full (or you can't get a table at the time you want), sit at the Chef's Counter. You can watch the action in the open kitchen. The talented chef/owner trained with some of the most famous chefs in the world."
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: This intimate French bistro is a romantic place to celebrate an occasion or to create one with a proposal.
