Chez Billy

Chez Billy Review

The development boom that has reshaped D.C. in recent years leaves more than a few up-and-coming neighborhoods short of commendable culinary choices, which made this French bistro's arrival even more welcome in the new residential hotspot of Petworth, just northeast of Columbia Heights. Juicy steak frites and melt-in-your-mouth mushroom risotto share menu space with several refreshingly light housemade charcuterie creations. The interior is as sumptuous as the crème du chocolat, bathed in dark wood and antique fixtures from the space's former life as Billy Simpson's, where African-American luminaries used to make the scene in days gone by.
