About this Business
From Our Editors
It's fitting that Christian Gautrois and his wife Christa purchased a French restaurant whose name translates to "the old lodge." After all, Christian, who also serves as the eatery's chef, was born in Champagne and learned to cook in Paris before moving to the DC area. Together, the pair brings an Old-World ambiance and classic French fare to Bethesda's Le Vieux Logis.
Terra-cotta shingles, dark-wood shutters, and a hand-painted mural of the French countryside make up the quaint cottage exterior. This rustic theme extends to the interior, which features plush banquettes that sit along walls adorned with Renoir prints and copper knickknacks.
Lauded by the Washington Post's food critic Tom Sietsema, the menu at Le Vieux Logis is filled with dishes that exemplify traditional French cooking.
- Onion soup Les Halles: The soup's thick, rich beef broth is filled with soft onions and topped with gruyère.
- Salade frissée aux lardons: Crunchy applewood-smoked bacon, a poached egg, and garlic croutons make up this colorful bistro salad.
- Cuisse de canard confite à l'orange: Crispy moulard duck-leg confit in an orange sauce pairs with roasted fingerling potatoes, braised red cabbage, and apples.
