I ordered the chicken pot pie, one of my favorites, and it did not disappoint in flavor or appearance - a very nice touch. The atmosphere is young and vibrant, the menu is excellent and the service is fast enough.

This was the best meal we had in an 8 day trip to D.C./Virginia. Cozy atmosphere, excellent service, delicious food. The white bean soup is not to be missed. Would definitely go back!

Ate here with girlfriends for a girls weekend. Delicious! Loved my omelet and everyone love their food as well. The big hit was also the kouing-amann and none of us knew what this was. We even got extras to takeout to family! A must try!

Food is refreshingly inventive. The menu reflects seasonal produce with nods to comfort food. I love the classic movie posters that adorn the interior walls. Wine list is well appointed and seems to have a little of everything. I prefer full bodied reds and a...More

Hello David (and Grace!)- Thanks for reaching out. We DO tend to buy heavily from the Old World both for the sake of food pairings (we're a French bistro at heart) and for economical purposes. We strive to find wines of... More
