At Bistro Bis, politicos and powerbrokers schmooze alongside first-time visitors and longtime Capitol Hill residents. This restaurant in the Kimpton George Hotel is the kind of establishment where “everybody knows your name” (and if they don’t already, they soon will). Run by James Beard Award-winning chef Jeffrey Buben, Bistro Bis brings innovative interpretations of classic French bistro fare to a D.C. power zone. Diners return time and again to savor and be seen, and engaging staff members make the experience top-notch in an unpretentious way.
