Today Mike and I met my cousin Camille at Bistrot du Coin, one of our favorite French bistros in DC. Located on Connecticut Avenue in DC's famous Dupont Circle neighborhood, Bistrot du Coin is a great place to dine with family and friends.
It is loud and boisterous inside, which I think adds to the allure, but I wouldn't recommend it for a first date unless you don't care about hearing what your date is saying (sometimes the case).
The menu is vast with everything from white bean cassoulet, to monkfish medallions, to the ever popular steak maison served with bearnaise sauce and french fries. There is definitely something on Bistrot du Coin's menu guaranteed to please even the pickiest person's palette.
When you visit, expect crowds, and sometimes rushed servers, but overall delicious french bistro fare, great people watching and affordable prices.
My favorite is La Traditionelle Mouclade des Charentes, or steamed mussels in a light cream sauce with light curry. Order your mussels with some frites and you're good to go!
