Longtime chef Bernard Grenier celebrates the cooking and wines of his native Languedoc region at this affordable, vermilion-painted French dining room. There’s a good cassoulet, a luscious sauté of calves’ brains in lemony butter, and classically rendered crème brûlée and profiteroles. And its location across the street from Ford’s Theatre means you can enjoy a $21.95 three-course meal—with a glass of wine—before or after a show.
