This bistro located just above Dupont Circle offers typical French Bistro fare. The place is pricey for the quality of the food and service. Not much else on that side of the block, so there is little alternative for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant offers a nice atmosphere without being stuffy, although the prices are on the stuffier side. The service was lovely and the chestnut soup was delicious, although my main meal (beef sausage with couscous & veggies) was very salty, so I couldn't finish it.

Bistrot du Coin opened its doors on Memorial Day of 2000 by Yannis Felix and Michel Verdon. The motto is French, Fun and Friendly, this is our guideline to bring you the best experience ever at Bistrot Du Coin. The word Bistrot is defined in French as a neighborhood restaurant where you can eat good food at a fair price. The typical color of a French Bistrot is pale yellow to brown (otherwise known as Bistre) because the walls used to get dirty quickly from nicotine. Bistrot Du Coin is also known for its parties, three times a year to celebrate famous French events such as Bastille day on July 14th, The Beaujolais Nouveau on the third thursday of November or The New Year's Eve.
