After touring the capital city on segways, we had built up quite an appetite (it was most likely the heat)! But nonetheless, we were hungry after a day of exploring and decided to dine at a French restaurant in the touristy area of DC. Although there was no gluten-free menu, our server being French new the contents of each dish back and forth. For starters, we were rather adventurous in ordering Cervelle D’Agneau. Simply a fancy, French way of saying lamb brains. I will spare you of excruciating details, but it was excellent. For my entrée, I ordered the special: mussels in a garlicky white wine base with pommes frites, and a side of creamed young spinach. Everything in my entrée was delicious and very authentic. However, the portions were closer to American standard size rather than French. As for dessert, I indulged in a dessert special, a chocolate mousse with orange peel ice cream. The mousse was unlike anything I had before. The texture wasn’t airy, but neither was it too rich. And the ice cream was house made. The flavor was delicious!
I recommend this restaurant to anyone in DC looking for some great French food!
