Bistrot du Coin -- mussel heaven

Jim Zurer | Oct 27, 2000 12:39 PM

I have been to the very busy and very attractive Bistrot du Coin, the pretty new French bistro which has replaced the venerable hippie hangout--Food for Thought on Connecticut Avenue near Florida.

So far, the mussels have been excellent, the hangar steak tender, tasty and nicely sauced, the French fries crisp and well fried, and mesclun salad well executed.

The wine list is quite nice although the house sparkling wine from Drome is a tad sweet. They also have Belgian beer on draft which I am anxious to try.

It is like a trip to Lyon without the airfare....

A good place to eat before or after movies at the new art theater, Visions.
