Located on H Street, just moments from Flats 130, Le Grenier isn't your run-of-the-mill French restaurant. The atmosphere here is relaxed, convivial, and familiar than the traditional conventions of “haute cuisine.” Le Grenier’s exposed brick walls, vintage decor, and friendly staff all work together to put guests at ease.
Make no mistake, though, this restaurant serves fine French food. Order the coq au vin accompanied by haricots vert, and regulars say you might just enjoy one of the most tender, flavorful meals of your life. If you’d like to try something a bit more down to earth, go for a buttery, savory crepe filled with cheese, sauteed mushrooms, and onions. Pair your meal with a glass of wine (from France, of course!), and try to save room for dessert: There's always a new variation of crème brûlée, and you can order crepes stuffed with decadent ingredients such as Nutella, caramelized apples, poached plums, and coffee ice cream.
