Lunch in Bethesda?

a
Auriana Dec 7, 2010 12:14 PM

I've seen a couple of posts about this, but nothing too comprehensive. I'm in Bethesda for two days on business, staying at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda Metro Center. I'm looking for a delicious place for lunch, preferably French or Italian (but open to anything really), and cost is not an issue.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

    For Italian, we really like Assaggi Mozzarella Bar. http://www.assaggirestaurant.com/

        although not french or italian my recs for bethesda include
        Blacks Bar and Kitchen (gulf cooking) , Persimman (new amercan), Green Papaya (high end Vietnamese), Grapeseed (smallplates/wine bar), Jaleo (Tapas), Tako Grill (sushi), Panang (malaysian)
        although technically a small italian specialty shop, Cournacopia is fantastic and you should stop in and try the mortadella or priscutti sandwiches, some of the deserts or other things.
        sooooo good. even if it is just for a snack, it is worth it.
