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 a bouillabaisse, steak au poivre, 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. How can you go wrong?
