So, the first attempt at becoming an evening dining venue by the long time owners of what was Cafe Bonaparte (16 years) was not the success they had hoped. The reviews here bear that out, but so does the fact the just a couple months...More
Now renamed "Lutece by Bonaparte."
We immediately noticed things were amiss when we recently retuned to Bonaparte. The always reliable small French bistro in Georgetown was well regarded for its soup, crepes and salads.
