This Bistro Gets Capitol Hill's Vote. You'll rub elbows with the country's leaders here. While Bistro Bis is convenient to the Capitol Building, the food and wine is what attracts Washington's elite. Plan a power breakfast, lunch or dinner meeting around the classic French bistro cuisine of Chef Jeffrey Buben. His kitchen turns out perfect pommes frites, house-made saucisson and Buben's own rich version of bouillabaisse. Innovative French rotisserie fare includes starters like galette of chevre, rabbit and potato. For the main event, try the fragrant braised-veal stew.
A Delightful Ambiance On Every Level. Thenatural cherry interior of this two-level restaurant puts the idea of a French bistro in a modern context. Take in the zinc bar with its tall columns and fabulous fixtures, the tiered dining area with its soft patterned tile floor, and the translucent screens that divide the space. Beautifully-presented artwork lines the walls.
