Bistro La Bonne’s main dishes are favorites that range from cassoulet Toulousain (cannelloni bean stew with duck confit, sausage, smoked bacon and lamb) and navarin d’agneau aux primeurs (braised leg of lamb with tomato, carrots, turnips & green beans), to grilled merguez sausage and blanquette de fruits de mer (mussels, shrimp, scallops and salmon in a champagne cream sauce).<br />If you seek authentic French cooking in the Washington area, take a spin up to U Street, where executive chef/owner Daniel Labonne tackles some of France’s more complex fare with a winning hand. <br><br>Our mission is to create a memorable dining experience for any special occasion, in addition to a simple dinner date with friends or a romantic evening with that special someone. So come and “Enjoy the Journey, at Bistro La Bonne”.

"I've been to Bistro la Bonne four or five times now over the course of the last year and I've enjoyed it thoroughly every time. The food is always fantastic, it won't break the bank, and all of the pretension you'll find at other French inspired spots in DC is left way behind.
Try the beef tartare- it's the best I've ever had. The mussels, which are somehow always plump despite the season, are also fantastic. The "Americaine" version includes HEAPS of seafood- big shrimp, crawfish tails, and scallops. It's incredible!
The service is good, but sometimes a little rushed at the end- if it's busy, don't linger. They do a great job if you order your whole meal at once and tell them you want it paced- courses always come out perfectly timed!"
