Let’s Do Lunch
For this issue’s lunch, we stayed close to home and went to Café Bonaparte, a Georgetown favorite that first opened its doors in 2003. On a chilly Friday afternoon, it was packed and buzzing with people dining. The café does not take reservations, so be prepared.
We were impressed by their well-selected wine list and personal service. We tried the full gamut of the menu, including delicious mussels, asparagus risotto, calamari, French onion soup, and, of course, crepes. From the French fries and French onion soup to the last drop of the French press, we loved Café Bonaparte.
Finally, we sampled three different desserts, the best of which was--the Napoleon--coinidentally the name of Cafe Bonaparte’s sister restaurant, Napoleon Bistro & Lounge in Adams Morgan. Another restaurant, Malmaison, specializing in music and art, will be opening soon at 3401 K St., NW.
