Ooh La l’Amour

Bernard and Sarah Bouissou

Bernard’s and Sarah’s Wine Bar, Ridgefield, CT

Nearly 20 years ago, Bernard and Sarah Bouissou found love in French cuisine—and with each other—while working at New York City’s legendary Le Cirque. Today the husband-and-wife team indulge their shared passion for French cuisine at their eponymous restaurant and wine bar.
