de oink cafe guide to … washington dc! bistro la bonne

On the last day in DC, Kat and I decided to keep things simple and have dinner near our place (and we need not rush back to pack).

After walking around U Street, we settled on this small French bistro – Bistro La Bonne.

lobster bisque and crab meat (US$7.50)

As it was rather chilly (yah, the weather decided to turn nice and cooling on our last day in DC!), we started our meal with a bowl of lobster bisque and crab meat. The soup turned out to be more tomato-ish rather than a rich seafood flavour broth that a good lobster bisque should be.

steak frites (US$15.95)

My main for the night was steak frites. The steak was cooked to my preference – medium rare. The accompanying béarnaise sauce was flat, and didn’t help to enhance the flavour of the steak. As for the frites, they were over-fried and dried.

poulet roti (US$14.95)

Kat got the poulet roti – roasted chicken with mashed potatoes. I didn’t taste the chicken but she did tell me the dish was rather salty.

Bistro La Bonne was not exactly the best place to end our DC journey – still I really like bistro’s cosy ambience.
