La Piquette should not be confused with its predecessor, Le Zinc (some of the reviews actually refer to the earlier spot in the same location). The food is quite good, about on a par with an average (but not particularly special) French bistro that you...More

This location used to be Le Zinc, and La Piquette has moved in. The result is an authentic French bistro, run by the folks who own Bistro Le Pic. The food here is more casual, true bistro fare. I had moules frites and my companion...More

My husband and I went out for dinner on the spur of the moment last night and discovered La Piquette -- a gem of a restaurant in Cleveland Park. We normally just go to a casual happy hour on Fridays after a long work week,...More
