We've been to this lovely French restaurant twice, and we even went once to its predecessor, Chez Francois, when it was located in downtown Washington, D.C. Both our visits here have been for special anniversary dinners.
This time, we decided to try the Sunday Brunch, since it was the time of year when we knew the gardens here would be blooming. It was just a little too chilly to eat outside at noon, but we were given a great table by a window with a view of the garden. The meal was superb, as we knew it would be from our previous visit. The prix-fixe menu lets you select your entree and then you have a choice of appetizers and desserts. In addition, you are served a bread plate, a salad, and a sorbet to "cleanse your palate" before the main course. We don't drink alcohol, but those who do would have a fine choice of beverages. Our waiter, Brandon, was very thoughtful and attentive without interfering with our conversation, as some waiters tend to do. All the dishes we tried were wonderfully flavorful and very attractively arranged on the plates. You don't want to hurry over a meal here - instead you want to enjoy this lovely and relaxing experience in the dining rooms filled with antiques and Old World decor!
