Le Chat Noir

Le Chat Noir, one of the best French restaurants in the city, is the kind of place where one person could wear a cocktail dress and the other jeans and a t-shirt, but no one would feel out of place. The Friendship Heights spot is great for families, somewhere you can bring every generation together to toast to your little cousin’s sixth grade graduation, which happens to be on your great-uncle’s birthday. The kiddos will love the Nutella crepe, which is the best in town, and the straightforward, yet delicious steak frites. And anyone seeking more “sophisticated” French food will enjoy the butter-soaked escargot.
