Summary: This hip and sophisticated modern French bistro restaurant is very warm and inviting, despite its location near Union Station within the Hotel George. Regular customers include senators and congressman who regularly dine in luxury and fancy ambience. Parking may be tricky along the street, but once we circled around a few times and found a spot, we noticed they offer free valet service. Closest Metro is Union Station.
We went for Valentine’s Day brunch – and I was delightfully pleased. From the warm and friendly service to the modern and clean interior design to the delicious and satisfying food, Bistro Bis was great. A special menu was offered for the day, but we ordered from the regular Brunch menu. Several items caught our eye and we debated on ordering possibly a third entrée to share between us. They served delicious biscuits and muffins as we waited for our meal, and we enjoyed them with a nice glass of hot tea. After devouring my meal with glee, I happily splurged on the special chocolate trio dessert – it was Valentine’s Day after all. Decadent chocolate crème brulee, chocolate ganache cake with gold leaf, and bittersweet chocolate mousse, which was more like gelato that transported me back to Europe. I would definitely like to try this place for a special dinner sometime. I say special, since the price is a little expensive for the every day night out.
