Capital near the Capitol!
Entering Bistro Cacao is a bit like leaving the 21st century behind. Located in an old brick building, up some stairs off the street, not far from the Capitol, one expects perhaps to find Toulouse-Lautrec or Benjamin Harrison sitting inside! The several small dining rooms are intimate and warm. We were seated by a welcome fire, on a cold rainy night.
The service was impeccable and prompt.
Some of us started with a delectable lobster bisque while others had the traditional soupe à l’oignon loaded with excellent cheese. The beet salad with mozzarella was amazing as well. Next, my grilled mahi mahi with lemon butter sauce was perfection. Some of us had the filet mignon with port wine sauce, and exclaimed it was succulent!
A bottle of crimson, heartwarming, Burgundy accompanied our meal, and we could not help but order dessert. In my case, an exquisitely light and delicious apple tart, the like of which I had not had since my youth in France!
A capital evening to crown my short visit to our capital!
