Amuse Bouche

amuse-bouche –  a small, savory portion of food served before a meal, typically without charge at restaurants

I know it’s not much, but it’s the thought that counts.

An amuse bouche is an “offering” from the chef.  I like to think of it as a little thank you for coming in.

Amuse-bouche means literally to “entertain the mouth” (insert your own joke here).

I always feel like I’m in pretty good hands when I receive an amuse-bouche.

I believe that if the chef took the time to put together a nice gift for each of his/her patrons then the rest of the meal will receive the same attention to detail.

Usually I’m right.
