THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Fourchette Restaurant Review: An Adams Morgan old-timer, this restaurant holds its own in a town where new and trendy reign. A good thing, too, for the cooking is well executed and the portion sizes ample enough for even the most ardent gastronome. Lunch specials include a mesclun salad dressed with a creamy mustard vinaigrette, bowls of mussels Provençal, and delicate crêpes, filled with seafood and bathed in a rich cream sauce. Dinners, of course, consist of dressier fare, including bouillabaisse, steak au poivre, veal tongue, roasted rack of lamb, and that French classic, sweetbreads with mushrooms and shallots. The waiter brings the dessert tray, and all good resolve flees, for there in the middle is a floating island, a most delectable concoction. This custardy version is topped with a puffy meringue and drizzled with caramel. Looking for a classic French brunch? Stop by on weekends for a real treat.
