3. Maison Kayser
Maison Kayser is a beautiful French restaurant with a charming vibe. This restaurant features a beautiful grand and white color scheme with windows that expand out into D.C. While eating at Maison Kayser, you will hear beautiful French songs being played all over the restaurant. Accompanying the charming and cozy atmosphere of this restaurant is the wonderful food being served. When receiving the menu at first glance, everything will appear to be in French; but don't worry, because the English translations are directly below each item on the menu.
I recommend the french toast. The french toast is super fluffy and served with a cup of fresh fruit. Our waiter was extremely nice to us and even gave us two free desserts on the house! We received a chocolate croissant and mini pistachio financiers. The financiers were delicious and were actually my favorite thing I ate while in D.C.
4. Ford's Theater
