What the Press is Saying:

"This is a kitchen that doesn't shout to make itself heard. It gets a diner's attention with subtle touches...Chances are, you will be well taken care of at Café du Parc. Servers are quick with suggestions and explanations."

- Washington Post


"It's a straightforward café that serves what the French call 'une cuisine soignée.' We translate that as very fine food."

- The Washington Times


 "The charming and convenient new spot from Chef Antoine Westermann is a traditional French bistro, wine bar and patisserie all in one…. Pop in for coffee and homemade brioche on your walk to work. Pick up a fresh salad nicoise and tartine du jour for lunch. Or grab a baguette, house-made eclairs, or a chocolate tart on your way home."

- Daily Candy DC


 "Oui, Oui, Oui- That's yes for breakfast, lunch and dinner at the District's newest French outpost, Café du Parc. Chef Antoine Westermann has created a traditional French bistro, wine bar and patisserie where guests can enjoy menu items from steak tartare to chocolate éclairs in the sunny dining room or the patio."

- Washington Life


"One dish demands mention: for an amuse gueules, Westermann presents a veal, pork, and duck foie gras pate cooked with port wine and Armagnac, then wrapped in pastry with a natural gelee; he calls this "pate en croûte d’Antoine Westermann," and it is one of his signature dishes. The pate is every bit as sinfully rich and delightful as it reads."

"…Café du Parc, offering a taste of Paris on the Potomac. The creation of renowned Alsatian chef, Antoine Westermann, its French-accented menu includes scrumptious pate en croûte, a pot-au-feu terrine, and a variety of desserts, including mille feuille (puff pastry with vanilla custard)."

- Business Traveler


"With the help from Michelin-starred chef Antoine Westermann, Café du Parc is well on its way to stealing the hearts of travelers and locals with dine-in and take away treats."       

- Capitol File Magazine


"I'll (still) award it a credible three of my Domes, based on the handsome setting topped by the second level dining room where Chef de Cuisine, Christophe Marque and his staff work from an open kitchen; the elegant but reasonably priced menu for both food and wine; and the exquisite food."

- The Hill


"…. Café du Parc is comme il faut; zippy, French speaking servers in crisp-white long aprons; gleaming white tile and zinc, porcelain door handles; and the piece de resistance, a sidewalk café that abuts a tree-lined section of Pennsylvania Avenue, transforming it into a boulevard."

- Washington Flyer


"The café embraces classic bistro cuisine with a nice selection of accompanying French wines."

- About DC


"The biggest rewards are to be found in revivifications of similar dishes from the French canon, such as the pate en croûte. It's a dazzler-an intense terrine of veal, duck and foie gras cooking in port and Armagnac and swaddled in crispy, buttery puff pastry. This is the kind of intricate, labor-intensive preparation you seldom see anymore…"

- Washingtonian


"All Grade A, insists the visiting Swiss-trained chef who dined here with Where."

- Where Washington


"Café du Parc comes to fill the void left by the Chanel boutique’s departure, and the café channels the designer’s sensibility- chic, smart and proper-into deeply satisfying French fare."
