Bistro La Bonne
The inspiration behind Bistro La Bonne's menu may be an ocean away, but the French-countryside cuisine is meant to taste like it was cooked in a nearby home's kitchen. "This is not food that demands your undivided attention," according to the Washington Post. "Rather, it's the kind of cooking that nicely complements date night or a gathering of friends." Bistro staples and Provençal cuisine keep bellies full, and the specialty cocktails, wines, and 15 draft beers ensure that spirits remain high.
Chef and owner Daniel Labonne began honing his culinary skills in his home of Martinique before moving to Toulouse, France, to continue his studies. He graduated with an extensive knowledge of regional French comfort foods—a knowledge that he put to use in kitchens throughout the Caribbean, England, and, finally, the United States. In addition to cooking familiar staples—coq au vin with tortellini pasta and slow-cooked beef bourguignon—Chef Labonne and his team prepare mussels in 11 broths, including everything from red curry to creamy apple-cider sauce.
Bistro La Bonne's spirit of revelry spills across both levels of the restaurant. Posters by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec adorn the walls. A French flag hangs beside an American flag over the bar. Empty wine barrels sit on a shelf above the front door. The fun-seeking crowds swell even more on days when the bar's television shows live French soccer matches, and the upstairs area occasionally turns into a lounge when the eatery hosts live DJ performances.
