Current and sophisticated, warm and intimate, Bistro Bis’ natural cherry interior is a wonderful modern version of a French bistro. Endive Salade, Steak Tartare, Salade Frisée, rich Beef Bourguignon, succulent seafood and fish renditions and the classic Steak Frites are favorite requests from diners. The menu is focused on modern interpretations of traditional French bistro fare, enhanced by classic French cocktails and a creative, thoughtful wine list.  Bistro Bis’ regular guests include senators, congressmen, celebrities and powerbrokers looking to dine in the ambiance and luxury of one of Washington’s most popular restaurants.
