La Chaumiere Restaurant Review

: The country inn atmosphere and the reliable cooking at this Georgetown institution have made it a favorite neighborhood gathering spot for more than three decades. Lunchtime is especially busy. The menu consists of basic bistro fare --- dishes like onion soup, mussels in garlic butter and sole meunière. Specialties include tripes à la mode de Caën and quenelles de brochette Lyonnaise, but you can also get more up-to-date dishes such as duck foie gras with cassis sauce. Check with your server for the daily specials, which have included crab-filled crêpes, couscous and cassoulet. The extensive wine list reflects the restaurant’s French character.
