Chef Sonny Abraham unifies diverse culinary traditions to forge a menu that showcases the flavors of Southern France. Dinnertime highlights the Angus-filet-mignon medallions drizzled in cognac-peppercorn sauce ($28) and the Chairman's Reserve pork tenderloin ($24), a fine cut of meat normally set aside for peg-legged administrators, comes topped with a whole-grain-mustard sauce. During lunch, balsamic glaze settles like snow on the peaks of caramelized onions and smoked bacon perched atop the calves liver ($13) and capers leap in a sparkling sea of lemon juice and white-wine sauce coating the sautéed rainbow trout ($12), which leads to a tiny pot of gold at the tail-end of each fish.

Flowers burst brightly as the centerpiece of every table, complimenting a mural of a scenic oceanscape that depicts figures frolicking on sandy beaches and wishing they had applied sunscreen. Reservations can be made by phone, and limited outdoor seating is available.

Brasserie Monte Carlo

When Sonny Abraham took a job at his father's restaurant, he assumed it would be a temporary arrangement until he received his pilot's license. But it was amid the hot suds of soapy dishes and the clatter of pots and pans that he fell in love with the restaurant industry and began dreaming of starting a fine-dining establishment of his own. In pursuit of his new dream, Sonny secured culinary positions at upscale hotels throughout Washington, DC, even traveling to Switzerland to work in a high-end kitchen. Ten years later, Sonny captains the kitchen of his own restaurant, Brasserie Monte Carlo.

Inside the restaurant, which was very recently REAL certified by the United States Healthful Food Council, Sonny whips up French Mediterranean dishes with housemade sauces and herbs from his own garden. The chef often delivers the still-sizzling dishes to the dining room himself, where diners await their meals over glasses of fine wine. A vivid mural sweeps across one wall, depicting typical scenes from Monte Carlo, from French sunbathers tanning on a beach to an ex-car-insurance salesman working on his first attempt at a romance novel, Even Car-Insurance Salesmen Fall in Love.
