    Food Blogger Kristin of Chi-Chi Studio Designs recommends Germantown Café. “I can never say no to the squash fritters with buttermilk cream, the braised lamb shank, or steak Benedict.”

    French onion soup was the best I have ever had. While the fish was great, the risotto was below average.

    Expect a long wait ... so make a reservation. The beignets are good but aren't Nola-style.
