THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bambule Restaurant Review

: Pegging itself as a Mediterranean-style (both French and Italian) restaurant, this uptown eatery is a small, tony place in Chevy Chase with handsome dining rooms, a stylish bar and a front terrace that exudes charm. With enough wrought iron and hanging greenery to evoke sunnier climes, it aims toward sophisticated diners who appreciate dishes like sautéed shrimp and scallops over black linguine. You may find such starters as the tempting grilled portobello mushroom packed with tiny shrimp and melting Fontina cheese. Equally commendable is the salade Niçoise, a warm-weather must when garden-fresh vegetables are best. Heartier dishes include sautéed chicken breast or veal scaloppine in a lemon-butter sauce, plus a range of pasta, seafood and steak offerings.
