Michel Richard’s Citronelle, voted Number 1 by The Washingtonian’s food critics, will be one of the restaurants serving up their best at the Best of Washington Party on Tuesday, July 8 at the National Building Museum.

Our critics wrote:  “The area’s finest—a culinary tour de force from one of the world’s great chefs, Michel Richard, that stitches together a patchwork of influences—French country and classical, Asian, American, junk food, even pop art—into a seamless whole that revels in its singularity and sense of fun yet still manages to wow you with the intensity and depth of its flavors.”
