THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Miche Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED The Tepper brothers---Jason cooks and Adam manages---have taken over this Bethesda old-timer, trying to forge a new menu that shrugs off outdated dishes in favor of more contemporary French cooking. Some items on the menu change regularly, but you may find such appetizers as the classic French soup (a little too mild for our taste) and sautéed frogs’ legs Provençale as a preamble to a very ambitious entrée selection. Our favorites: the braised lamb shank and grilled pork chop, though the rack of Colorado lamb looked like the star of the show. Your waiter may also urge you to order before dinner the signature soufflé dessert (chocolate or Grand Marnier), but other choices include chocolate mousse cake, profiteroles, a cheese platter, and raspberry crème brûlée. The brothers also offer a very fine wine list, and don’t hesitate to ask for suggestions. Always a neighborhood place for an older generation, La Miche and its new menu should tempt a broader and younger audience: the country French décor still affords European ambience while the menu assures patrons of contemporary French ingenuity.
