Please Note: This is the RSVP for men. I will have a separate RSVP for women in an attempt to keep the numbers generally even.
Hip newish French Bistro and Lounge brought to you by the Hilton Brothers (Marvin/Lost Society/Brixton/Satellite Room/etc). Across the street from the Petworth Metro. Should be fun and delicious.
REVIEW FROM WASHINGTON POST
Of all the watering holes opened by brothers Eric and Ian Hilton over the years, Chez Billy is the one I find myself grazing in most often. Unlike its siblings, clustered around the U Street corridor, Chez Billy graces restaurant-barren Petworth, and unlike the rest of its tribe, the youthful bistro cooks with a convincing French accent. Here's the place to go when you've got an omelet, beef daube, roast chicken or pot de creme on your mind. Each dish sounds simple, but each also exhibits attention to detail; those beef cheeks are sparked with star anise and orange zest, and that chicken is framed with a wedge of potatoes Anna. I prefer to sup in the dark and cozy dining room off the bar and climb the stairs for a drink and prime people-watching. The bonus on Friday and Saturday: a live jazz trio.
