Bistro Francais Restaurant Review

: Around midnight, when most restaurants have closed, this very French Georgetown establishment is likely to be full of chefs eating a dinner of steak frites or rotisserie chicken, lamb steak or duck breast with apple honey. But lighter fare, such as sandwiches and egg dishes, are available, too. Settle into one of the two dining rooms: pressed-tin ceilings and plenty of etched glass set against dark wood and further enhanced by French posters from the ’30s. Choose from a set menu that offers all the bistro standards, from onion soup to a salad garnished with a warm confit of duck gizzards. Daily specials might include roasted duck leg confit with garlic potatoes, roast pork with a potato gratin, pot-au-feu or Moroccan-style couscous. Enjoy the weekend Champagne brunch and at other times, the extensive wine list with numerous varietals from France and the U.S.
