Our goal is to provide Downtown New Bern a slice of creative French cuisine that has a focus on local and organic ingredients.

Valerie does a fantastic job. She is an exquisite chef. Everything was lovely. The pumpkin soup was delicious...the lamb shanks were out of this world... I wish we had had plum pie for dessert.
Bouchee Bee dinners are a wonderful pop-up collaboration between the chef, the Jarvis @220, and Savi's Wine Shop. The food and wine are fantastic and the Jarvis is beautiful.
As a wine pairing dinner, it was OK, but the overall selections were not to our taste in wines. Entree was undercooked, both the rabbit protein and the accompanying vegetables. Other courses were good. Enjoy the venue and have enjoyed previous experiences much more than this one.
Such a fun collaboration between the chef, the event venue, and local wine shop.
The entire evening was delightful. Food and service were great. The wine was good but not outstanding. Overall the cost was a bit excessive. Something we would probably only do occasionally.
An exceptional experience. We dined at Bouchee Bee in May to celebrate a special occassion, they set aside a special table for us and left us a note - what a great attention to detail! We were welcomed with a champagne cocktail at the door, a lovely touch; who doesn't love to start the evening with a bubbly in hand. But the food, OMG, the food!!!! The starter was a salmon tartar that was so good I would be willing to give unreasonable things to have it again. The second course was seared scallops over pea velloute - scallops were cooked to perfection - a beautiful sear on the outside while still soft and tender within, drooling just thinking about it again. Our main course was duck breast - cooked to perfection (literally perfect!), juicy and tender a beautiful medium rare. The chef described each course which i appreciated. The wine pairings were well thought out and reasonably priced (the events are in partnership with a local wine shop so you can buy the wines if you wish). We requested to purchase a full case of one of them, we liked it so much. There was one wine i didn't love, but that was more to do with the varietal. All in all, this is a great experience. The intimate cozy setting gives you the feeling of being at a dinner party. The Jarvis is an incredibly beautiful venue, although we didn't stay there, we enjoyed meandering through the rooms downstairs before dinner started. Will definitely plan on another road trip to New Bern (and schedule around a Bouchee Bee event).
