Fodor's Review

Even award-winning chef-and-owner Stephen Starr was surprised by how revered his first D.C.-area concept became within days of its opening. A faithful re-creation of the convivial Parisian bistro on a row where new kitchens try their luck nearly every week, his attention to detail—perfectly spreadable butter atop fresh loaves cut in the center of the kitchen, their aroma tantalizing customers half a football field away in the dining room—makes a night here into more than just a meal. This excellent spot prizes quality above all, from graceful martinis to hand-stuffed cheese ravioli to succulent, textbook-worthy steak frites and roasted chicken.
