Instead of French - I'm going for a neighboring country... Belgium (ha!)
Food: Et Voila! serves up French-Belgian fare. Expect great mussels, frites, country pate, and fantastic Entrecôte for you carnivores.

CLOSEST METRO: This Venue is NOT Metro Accessible ... though there is FREE Sunday metered & neighborhood Street Parking and consistent WMATA buses running from many Metro Stations!
--> The local D6 bus (http://www.wmata.com/bus/timetables/dc/d5-6.pdf) runs every 40 minutes on Sundays (till 12:25 am and goes right by the restaurant!) and connects with lots of Metro Stations (Dupont, Farragut West, Metro Center, Union Station, & Stadium Armory). This event is very workable for most folks w/o a car :)
For directions using the Metro, try using the Trip Planner at the WMATA website (http://www.wmata.com/rider_tools/tripplanner/tripplanner_form_solo.cfm).
Parking: It's a Sunday in DC, so there's free metered (on MacArthur) & neighborhood parking in the Palisades neighborhood.

1. Limited to 12 slots.
2. If you RSVP "YES" please make sure you can definitely make it. With 3,400+ 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 (http://tinyurl.com/5byotq).
3. Event already full?, waitlist for the event!. Use the Waitlist option (WAITLISTERS: Respond to my emails ASAP when you get them). Also, check back regularly as attendees have been known to cancel up to Noon the day of the event.
4. 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 (http://diningout.meetup.com/149/messages/boards/view/viewthread?thread=1650845#2991513).
