Classic French Restaurant 2013
Best French Fries 2003
Best Breakfast 2005. This laid-back three-meal-a-day French bistro does some of its best work in the morning (just ask regulars Vanessa Williams, the Clintons, or musician Rob Thomas), with pain perdu (French toast), poached egg on a goat cheese potato cake, ham and cheese croissant, and handmade crepes smeared with Nutella for the kids. And yes, there really is a jardin out front with 34 seats to enjoy your almond croissant and cafe au lait when the weather's warm.
Best Quiet Breakfast 2006. This relaxed bistro complete with verdant front garden patio is popular with the Clintons and the perfect place to enjoy a light breakfast of croissants, fruit salad, or oeuf du roi; a poached egg on a goat cheese potato cake.
