What You'll Get

Hungry stomachs must cook their own food when the brains get busy plotting ways to lay claim to the second, secret French throne. Quell an insurgent appetite with today's deal: for $15, you get $40 worth of new American cuisine at Brightwood Bistro, a neighborhood-focused cabin of comestibles on Georgia Avenue.

Brightwood's menu is packed to the gills with seafood and other classic items, prepared and served by a friendly staff. Warm up a dormant appetite with the sautéed shrimp and rice-noodle soup ($8), served in Thai lemon-grass broth with fresh veggies, or jump right in with a po' boy sandwich—lettuce, tomato, and remoulade sauce on crisp French bread, with your choice of chicken ($10), shrimp, oyster, or catfish ($12). Sample the house pride and joy with the crab-cake entree ($24), jumbo lump crabmeat partnered with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. Fried chicken and Belgian waffles clock in at $14, while jumbo shrimp and creamy grits ($19) come sautéed with shallots, garlic, andouille sausage, chopped tomato, and fresh herbs. If that still isn't enough, simply ask for an Angus beef burger ($12) wrapped in a larger Angus beef burger.

The Brightwood Bistro is the brainchild of five friends who grew up in the Brightwood neighborhood, just as if the kids from The Sandlot grew up and started a restaurant together, instead of being devoured by a rabid dog in what Roger Ebert called "the biggest downer of the '90s." The dining room is lined with large windows, while the clean, modern décor offers an airy, relaxed atmosphere perfect for a casual night out with friends or a date with destiny, that girl Destiny from the coffee shop, or destiny's actual proverbial children.

Brightwood Bistro is closed on Mondays.


Brightwood Bistro is adored by many, including the Washington Post and Zagat reviewers. Yelpers give it 3.5 stars.

  • Washington diners often complain of a lack of good neighborhood joints. Brightwood Bistro aims to be part of the solution. The room is attractive, with a palette of soft blues and greens. Banquettes line one wall, and modern drum lights provide a flattering glow. – Jane Black, Washington Post
  • I eat at the Bistro at least 3 to 4 times a week, and have never had an unpleasant dining experience. – James WP4046, Zagat
