Take me back, s'il vous plaît! This quaint, bustling brasserie located on 14th Street NW, draws inspiration from the Boulevard Saint-Germain cafes in Paris. The Eggs Norwegian— two smoked salmon eggs Benedict— and succulent Duck Sarladaises— a combination of two of France's most storied dishes— tell your taste buds one thing, je t'adore (I love you!).
But it was their superbly season roasted potatoes that surprised me most. This southwestern French side dish is traditionally prepared in duck fat, and at Le Diplomate it pairs well with the sauce hollandaise, which comes with the Eggs Norwegian.
P.S. If you have yet to visit Le Diplomate, then you're not doing DC right.
