French restaurant in Georgetown
Years ago I dined at an intimate French restaurant in Georgetown that was out of the mainstream of shops and restaurants. My recollection is that it was near one of the bridges to Arlington. Does this ring a bell with anyone. If not this one, then any other romantic spots in Georgetown or vicinity. I have a friend who will be proposing and wanted to give him a solid recommendation.
Could it have been Cafe La Ruche? It fits your description of being out of the mainstream and sort of near Key Bridge, and it's been a Washington institution since 1979.
Coincidentally, I had dinner there tonight, and was delighted by the meal. They serve traditional bistro dishes--I had a spicy merguez appetizer, followed by poulet cordon bleu, with a mousse au chocolat dessert. Everything was perfectly done, and it <b>felt</b> like I was back in Paris.
