Missing French Bistro on M Street?

I was wondering if someone could help me out with this. About 2-3 years ago, I dined at a French bistro on M Street. It reminds me of Bistro Francais, but I'm almost positive it was a different restaurant. I believe I read about it in the Washington Post (a Tom Sietsema review, perhaps?).

Well, I was wandering around Georgetown last week after a 2-year absence from the Washington area and I can't seem to find it. I kept walking past Bistro Francais but I'm sure that wasn't the restaurant. The bistro I'm thinking of had a long wait for those without reservations -- the entranceway was a long, narrow corridor that terminated at the maitre'd stand where you would put your name down for a table. A doorway to the right led to the bar area, and the door to the left led to the dining room. The bathroom was upstairs, and you had to walk to the back of the dining room to get to the stairwell -- past the display cases where the restaurant stored its desserts.

Does anyone know what the name of this restaurant is/was? Thanks!
