Bistro Bis

April 2021

Current Status: The last restaurant standing in Jeffrey Buben’s collection does very good French food at the base of Capitol Hill.  If you wrapping up a day near the Mall, and looking for something a little nicer, this spot might work.  They are open and doing dine-in, take-out and delivery.
