Bistrot du Coin: Best of Breakfast and Brunch 2012

Few restaurants in Washington pull off atmosphere as well as this Francophile institution. The jammed-in tables (each bearing a bottle of rosé), the roaring din, and the glittering disco balls help propel a party vibe, even during the day. A brief brunch menu is all about eggs (we prefer the classic Benedict over the hulking omelets), but look to the regular menu for such comforts as tartiflette (a bowl of soupy Reblochon cheese, bacon, and potatoes that’s divine with a baguette), hanger steak, and killer frites. Saturday and Sunday 11:15 to 4.
