good value French restaurants in DC area?

gourouni | Aug 19, 2007 11:23 AM

One thing about French restaurants is that I've never known them to be good values - if the quality is high, the portions are usually very small for the money. Are there any good value French restaurants in the DC area, and generally which French restaurants in the DC area would you recommend trying?

I've heard about a place on Lee Highway in Arlington called "Cafe Parisien Express" which I hear is a very affordable place - but I've heard the food is of uneven quality (some decent dishes, others not so much) and despite the charming appearance from the outside, it is more like a cafeteria from the inside.

I've also heard positive things about "Belgique Gourmande" and heard about a number of places with the word "Bistro" in their name, but too little specific info to match to each place.
