Thank you all for your constant support (Chefs Claudio and Mickael).

arrow This thank you note made our day...

From the early arrivals enjoying their lunch on Thursday, to the care and dedication to which the pathways were cleared throughout the snowy night on Friday, Colin and I are both so very grateful for you and your staff’s gracious hard work that went in to making the visit from the senior fellows such an enjoyable one. I often say it is a particular privilege to experience Dumbarton Oaks through the eyes (and awes) of a new visitor, but even sweeter is being witness to the deep joy, warmth, and welcome felt by our returning scholars, thanks to all of you.

With deep gratitude,

Emily - January 2013

Washington Post2009 FALL DINING GUIDE
By Tom Sietsema, Washington Post Staff Writer

Sunday, Oct. 18, 2009

Some of my fondest memories of Belgian food aren't from trips to Brussels but from journeys to this gem of a restaurant in the Palisades. Yes, the steamed mussels are good, but lots of places do steamed mussels competently. What a diner really ought to seek out here are those dishes that are dearer. I'm thinking of beer-stoked beef stew presented with mustardy grilled bread, or cream-sauced chicken and julienned vegetables, a delicate waterzooi. The big surprise on the menu: one of my favorite hamburgers in town. Start with the lush salmon gravlax, end with the tarte Tatin, and be sure to reserve a table. The narrow Et Voila! is just 52 seats in a part of town that could use more interesting places to refuel, and the word is out. Among those who have discovered it are New York chef Daniel Boulud, Bill and Hillary, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Washington Post

Cuisine: Sturdy Belgian bistro classics, generous pours from French boutique wineries, a well-chosen Belgian beer roster, and a short menu of wonderful desserts—many of them centered around Callebaut chocolate—make chef/owners Claudio Pirollo and Mickael Cornu’s restaurant one that would be welcomein any neighborhood.

Mood: The modish space could fit right into the bustling bistro scene in Brussels—ivory and orange walls and clear wall panels embedded with grasses and leaves.

Best for: A relaxed meal with friends or a significant other.

Best dishes: Any of the carefully dressed salads, but especially the chopped endive with Chimay cheese and pecans; silken gravlax with crème fraîche and a wedge of olive-oil pancake; a robust carbonnade à la flamande (a kind of beef stew) spiked with dark beer; a flavorful organic Meyer-beef burger with Chimay and bacon; crisp golden fries; a standout chocolate mousse; Belgian waffle with poached pear and dark chocolate.
