Bistro Bistro B Opens in Dupont

New French resto hits the financial sweet spot

    Did we mention there's no way in the WORLD we're cooking tonight? Yeah.

    Sounds like someone got stuck stuttering, but Bistro Bistro B opened yesterday at 1727 Connecticut Ave. NW. The Dupont Circle joint is housed in a 277-seat duplex that has recently housed a Chinese restaurant and then an Italian one. Sure, both failed, but Bistro Bistro B has faith along with its unnecessarily repetitive name.

    Browse a winelist that's long enough for vine snobs but brief enough for the ADD set, or slurp down cocktails made with goodies like vanilla vodka. But -- we will grudingly admit -- this spot isn't all about the alcohol. With dishes like crispy duck a l'orange, braised lamb shank and steamed mussels in white wine (most $20 or less), we think this bistro may have a chance as well.
