Good food (with French background), nice atmosphere. Neighborhood Gem, but a tad expensive to go to every week (but have been 3 times).

My wife and I visited K Town Grill for an anniversary lunch before taking off on a long trip west. Not our first time or I hope the last. Great food, wine and service. Not inexpensive but worth the price. Highly recommended.
