What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than at a French restaurant?Seriously, this place is a great hidden gem (received an Open Table Diner's Choice Neighborhood Gem recognition).

Featured on Table Talk By Carole Sugarman - October 2012

Even before Terasol hired a new chef and expanded its kitchen and menu offerings, I was a big fan of the ultra-charming French bistro and artisans’ shop on Connecticut Avenue. But when I read in the Washington Post last week that owners Alan Moin and Sabrina Ousmaal had signed on Hector Guerra, who previously worked at the Caucus Room, the original Galileo, and under Yannick Cam at the long-ago Le Pavillon, I had to check it out. Sticking with what has worked, the accessible menu of soups, salads, sandwiches, quiches and entrees has not changed dramatically—although Guerra has added paninis, a few more main courses and specials. And now with a new deep fryer, he can serve up homemade chips and fries.At my dinner Saturday night—from the asparagus soup to the beet salad, steak frites and bouillabaisse—the food had a downtown-sophistication, and was as lovely to look at as the pottery and other artisan items sold in the front of the restaurant. The place was always a gem; now it just has a little more sparkle.

CLOSEST METROVan Ness or Tenleytown (Red Line - not within walking distance).

For directions using the Metro, try using the Trip Planner at the WMATA website.

Need to Contact the Restaurant? [i.e. confirm location, notify to the group if running late, etc.]. Text on your phone to 466453 (GOOGLE) and type the restaurant name + the city/state in the message body. Google Business Services will text you back with the address and phone #!


1. If you RSVP "YES" please make sure you can definitely make it. With 3,700+ members and limited seating, we cannot afford no-shows. It's unfair to the other members who would like to attend and also to the organizers who have to explain to the restaurant why the reserved # of guests didn't show (can damage our reputation). No-Show rules apply.

2. Event already full?, waitlist for the event!. Use the Waitlist option (the Organizer for each event will enable this as needed). Also, check back regularly as attendees have been known to cancel up to Noon the day of the event.

3. Billing (add 30% tax/tip to your bill). Remember, include the required 30% for tip / tax in addition to the food / beverages you order as defined in our FAQs.

4. NEW MEMBERS or 1st TIME EVENT GO-ERS, if you have questions about the group, RSVPs, or the overall dining event process, visit our FAQs and our No-Show Policy.
