Mussels; fries, with truffle aïoli or pesto mayo for dipping; bison tartare; Steak et Fromage sandwich, with bison brisket, cheddar, grilled onions, and horseradish sauce.
Blustery evenings are perfect for lingering over a big pot of moules à la marinière—mussels steamed in white wine and showered with parsley—with a baguette and blond ale. It’s hard to beat the tiny bivalves served for $19.95 at the French bistro Café du Parc, but the plumper Prince Edward Island specimens ($16) swimming in aromatic broth at Granville Moore’s (1238 H St., NE; 202-399-2546) come close. And they’re even sweeter Mondays between 5 and 7, when a shareable portion is $10.
