Le Grenier - attic, in English - is a space to enjoy French Cuisine with a great wine selection or craft cocktail in a vintage attic décor, a cozy atmosphere with intimate ambiance on the vibrant H corridor. Chef Thierry Sanchez offered a menu of French dishes with frequent changes that reflect the seasons.

"Le Grenier is a welcome addition to H St NE. I was so pleasantly surprised. I wrote an e-mail note to the restaurant with what I thought were numerous hits and one or two misses. I didn't get a response which only affirms this restaurant has the appropriate attitude to be a stereotypical French restaurant. Too bad. It's the difference between liking the place and loving the place. As a result, I honestly don't think they have or want a connection with their patrons many of who, like myself, are looking for a neighborhood home. It's not a good thing to ignore your neighbors (or anyone for that matter). Still having said that...here are my thoughts:
The fois gras mousse was heaven. The Coq au Vin a traditional win. The French Onion Soup classic. All very rewarding. The Cote de porc aux agrumes not such a hit. I didn't mind the bone in pork chop or it being untrimmed (the fat giving it potential flavor); however, the muscle tendon make it chewy and the cut was well.....less than generous. The flavor was as anticipated and promoted on the menu and a great combination of flavors. The french bread, always a benchmark for a French restaurant, was pretty good. But someone please tell both this restaurant and Boundary Road one block down that this beverage trend of putting cocktails in the smallest glass made is well...annoying. It's not the size of the drink that's the problem. It's the size of the glass. The service was attentive, but took it's measure from making eye contact with the table for needs more than making eye contact with the guest, but that's a minor criticism. I thought the wait staff was very good.
The restaurant was charming and romantic. It reminded me of the original owners version of "Two Quails". Very whimsical. So nice to see charm in a restaurant.
Overall, a great experience. I'm looking forward to going back to explore then menu more."
