La Grande Boucherie has opened its first DC location and sixth location overall in the historic Bank Building a block from The White House. Founder Emil Stefkov drew inspiration from the carefree spirit of La Belle Epoque era. La Grande Boucherie blends the ambiance of a steakhouse with the vibe of a Parisian cafe. Corporate Executive Chef Maxine Kien designed the menu at this new DC location, which is filled with large-format meats, a raw bar, and classic and modern French dishes. Some menu highlights guests can get excited for include prime cuts like Filet de Bœuf or Filet Mignon Au Poivre, bistro classics like Soupe à l'Oignon, Moules a la Basquaise and Les Escargots, and much more. The wine list features a variety of options from France, while also highlighting some wines from specific regions in the US. The drinks list features La Grande Boucherie’s signature selection of cocktails, as well as three special cocktails made in collaboration with DC mixologist and winner of Netflix’s Drink Masters, LP O’Brien. The 14,250 square-foot space boasts a main dining room, as well as a 20 foot curved bar imported from Paris. La Grande Boucherie is open daily, serving lunch from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., brunch from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., and dinner from 4:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. For more information, visit their website here.
