Great dinner at Cafe du Parc in Willard Hotel

We were staying at the JW Marriott and decided to give the restaurant a try. Had a wonderful experience- they are trying to "bring France to you." The chef from France truly replicates all the best bistro recipes. I had traditional onion soup and an entree of mussels with pommes frites. Both dishes were perfect and were unusually generous portions. My husband had potato leek soup and pot au feu served with tiny dishes of egg salad, chopped beets, cole slaw or horseradish creme fraiche or mustard which he enjoyed trying with the beef.

Everyone on staff is eager to make diners happy, especially the bartender Olivier.(He's really familiar with the young French wines he serves.)

Coming from NYC, we were suprised how reasonable the prices were. I believe the mussels/fries were about $19 and the beef, as well as the other entrees, ranged in the mid- $20s. We can't comment on dessert as we were too full to order! We will certainly return on a future trip.
