Balducci's

A great bakery, well-stocked meat and fish counters, hard-to-find pro-duce, chocolates, and a selection of prepared foods and house-made soups in one stop. 10323 Old Georgetown Rd.; 301-564-3100.

Bistro Provence

The place to satisfy your craving for something classically French, such as duck confit with lyonaisse potatoes and frozen nougat with blackberries and orange. 4933 Fairmont Ave.; 301-656-7373.

Gringos & Mariachis

This ongoing margarita-and-nachos party can be a tough ticket—especially on weekends, when waits can top an hour—but it’s worth holding out. Home in on duck nachos and smoky chicken molepoblano. 4928 Cordell Ave., Bethesda; 240-800-4266.
