Tucked into a little off beat corner of Old Town Alexandria is Bastille, Chefs Christophe and Michelle Poteaux's award winning intimate bistro and wine bar. Bastille offers guests a contemporary take on classic French fare at approachable prices, set in a warm and upscale environment. <br /><br />The Poteaux's creations are sparked by traditional, yet modern interpretations of classic dishes that utilize seasonal, locally sourced and farm fresh ingredients. With an expansive wine list, unique beer selections and creative cocktails, Bastille has a little something for everyone.

"First visit to Bastille & the experience guarantees that we'll be back again. This North Old Town Alexandria location is unmatched for its uniqueness. Wife had the scallops & me the duck breast. Both were prepared flawlessly & perfectly matched with the wine recommended by our waitress. It was a beautiful evening so we opted for the patio dining but the interior of Bastille is also quite beautiful. They have a great happy hour deal at the bar during the week which will bring us back during non-Restaurant Week times. Give Bastille a try!"

"Charming location alongside the Ritz Carlton with a great street view from the window booths. Dinner offerings were both unique & nicely prepared. Wait staff was enthusiastic & knowledgeable about the food & wine menus. Definitely worth a return visit."
