This is our go-to restaurant in downtown Bethesda. The food is always excellent, the service impeccable, and the decor charming. The menu is varied and changes on a regular basis. But if you have a favorite and it is not on the menu that day, you can ask the chef and he does his best to accommodate you. How can you argue with service like that? They have valet parking in the evening and sitting at the outside tables on a nice evening is reminiscent of the outdoor cafes in Paris.
