Béarnaise transports the flavors of Paris to Capitol Hill. Located at 3rd and Pennsylvania Ave. Southeast, Béarnaise serves bistro fare in a humble, but chic, atmosphere describes as "A French Revelation" by The Washington Post. <br /><br />Inspired by their childhood memories in Montreal and years of training and living around France Chef Spike Mendelsohn and his sister, Micheline Mendelsohn Luhn, opened the bistro to rave reviews. <br /><br />In the lively dining room, guests dine on classic French dishes with a twist in comfty leather booths surrounded by antique mirrors and vibrant original artwork from Parisian galleries. Pair your meal with a bottle of wine and indulge in decadent desserts to make any meal feel like an escape to France.

"It was a nice lunch, service was very slow, orders took a while to be taken and then arrive. Server did not come around and check on us often. Perhaps it was because we erect seated upstairs? Usually they are very quick. Based on previous experiences I would go back, but if this was my only visit I wouldn't."

"Each shrimp, scallop or salmon salad I've had is perfect. Light, perfect quantities of ingredients, and tasty! Their specials menu is always a great choice."

With the look and feel of one of the "Great Camps" of the Adirondacks, Tower Oaks Lodge serves an American-style saloon menu. Adjacent to a 21-acre nature preserve, Tower Oaks Lodge is located just off I-270. The raw bar features oysters from both coasts.
