Brasserie Monte Carlo
If you are looking for a unique place to go for brunch, lunch, or dinner, Brasserie Monte Carlo is the place to go. Stepping into the restaurant, one can not help but notice the beautiful mural (designed by Dianne Hoppman) that takes up the whole right wall, and the rustic decor that helps add warmth to the room. Sonny Abraham owner/chef of Brasserie Monte Carlo has been in the restaurant business since 1985. Sonny has done a wonderful job of staffing his restaurant with only the best. He personally completed his culinary training in Lausanne, Switzerland and his matre d' worked at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC. It is truly a team effort at Brasserie Monte Carlo, at times you may even see Sonny waiting on a table to help his staff out, or helping in the kitchen or even providing wine service. Sonny's goal is to bring the taste of Washington's well known restaurants to downtown Bethesda but for a fraction of the cost maintaining quality, value and service.
Last night we had our company meeting and I decided to take my employees to the Brasserie Monte Carlo in Bethesda, MD. The restaurant is in the heart of downtown Bethesda. Its a small and cozy restaurant. The decor inside is outstanding, using beautiful colors like burgundy and royal blue. We were immediately greeted by a beautiful waitress and were seated. The wine selection was very good with a wide range of prices. The waitress recommended a very nice wine. The food was excellent. I ordered a rack of lamb that was cooked to perfection. It came with sauteed spinach and potato. I would highly recommend this place and will definitely be coming back in the near future.
Wanted to go to this resturant for years and finally decided to go for my birthday. Was worried about my kids but thehad steak and loved it. I had the squash soup, mussels and duck! Fabulous!!! The veal special was also excellent. Garlic potatos were unbelievable! Nephew had a salad with anchovies which I loved even though I can't stand anchovies. Wine was great, service was spectacular. Reminds me of Persimmon, intimate, small menue but great choices. Place to go for special occassions. Ended up being expensive with 2 bottles of wine and several bottles of water, but it was my birthday after all, I told my daughter.
I'm from New York - home of fine dining...so when I say the food and service were both stupendous, I mean it! I will most definitely dine at this fine establishment, anytime I am in town, and I would recommend the same for all others.
While Brasserie Monte Carlo may not be as well known as some of DC's other long standing French restaurants, i would submit this is the best french food in the city. the environment is relaxed, and the service and ambiance are nice, but the real reason to come here is the food. one of the best values for the buck in Greater DC!
