Le Pain Quotidien in Bethesda Row

people watching while waiting for our order



Bethesda row is almost like a mini version of Georgetown. They have such a wide array of shops and restaurants that it took us at least an hour to decide as to where we will be dining that fateful day. We just finished our trip to the Franciscan monastery at Washington D.C. and we were trying to be a bit spontaneous and since it's easier to find a parking space here as compared to Georgetown, we opted to come here for dinner.

After patiently reading and checking the menus, we decided on Le Pain Quotidien. It is a restaurant that showcases artisan made breads and pastries fresh from their bakery. It also features organic and local produce in all of their lunch and dinner fares.

I ordered a summer squash soup and quiche lorraine while my hubby had prosciutto and mozzarella di buffala.

I love how they have presented our meals and what I thought was a very light fare proved to be quite filling. I think this is by far, one of the healthiest meals we ever had! I hope to come back and try other items from the menu!
