Le Bouchon still solid after all these years

The bread (Red Hen) and the butter are always there for you; the onion soup is topped with (purposely) stale bread and a thick crown of melted gruyere. Duck confit, salade Lyonnaise, foie gras - check, check, check. As part of my monthly "My Country, My Cuisine" feature for ABC 7, I ask a local who was foreign-born to take me somewhere that reminds them of home. My subject tonight, Juan Luis Goujon, actually straddles both France (father) and Spain (mother). He lived in France 15 years and when I pressed him to tell me where he eats when he longs for that mood, and the food from back home, he didn't even hesitate. You can see highlights from our meal at Le Bouchon after 10:30 p.m. tonight, right here.
