Le Diplomate

F07EFEE0-9B23-4E32-A887-CFAB0B687A4CWhen you’re relocating to a new area, finding a place that is familiar is a comforting treat. We’re moving to a suburb of Washington DC to be closer to our daughter who lives near Logan Circle. Literally right around the corner from her is Le Diplomate (luh deep-lo-mat), a French-inspired Stephen Starr restaurant. It’s a twin to Parc in Philadelphia, which was a favorite when we lived near there. From the terrific assortment of breads to the bistro décor, it was like déjà vu. I was even able to order my favorite Warm Shrimp Salad. The only slight complaint I have is that when we asked for a table in the shade, the hostess took us to one where three of four chairs were in full sun. Vraiment? But we were quickly shown to a table that suited us better. I suggest that you make a reservation, as « The Dip » is always hopping.
