Café du Parc
1401 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Luckily for DC, you don't have to be a guest at Downtown's Willard Intercontinental Hotel to come for a breakfast, lunch, or dinner full of French fare at Cafe du Parc. Bordeaux-style dishes like trout almandine, braised lamb shanks, and mushroom risotto offer high-caliber taste and presentation, which can only be enjoyed properly with a glass of wine in hand. They've got a handful of cocktails for the non-wine drinkers, but there just has to something for everyone in its winding international list.
