Come to this upscale French bistro on Capitol Hill during the day and you'll be surrounded by politicians in suits who give the space a hectic feel. That said, if you're looking for a more relaxed setting for a date or special occasion, stop in at dinnertime, and share a bottle of Côtes du Rhône as you indulge in traditional French dishes like steak frites, bouillabaisse, and beef bourguignon. You might want to share the bill, too, considering the higher prices at this refined restaurant, which sports the warm cherry woods and tiled floors of a classic brasserie.
James Beard award-winning Chef Jeffrey Buben and his team are serving up a Thanksgiving a la carte menu that includes heritage turkey breast with sweet potato puree and apple, fennel, and chestnut stuffing. The restaurant is also continuing its annual pie sale for $25.95 each with three flavors—lemon chess, bourbon pecan, and pumpkin spice—for pickup or delivery on Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 5 pm.
