    Fancy French restaurant suspension: Marcel's - Duck at 49 degrees, cross contamination control, no one certified food safety. Declined to explain or show us improvements. Passed city reinspection.

    *** stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. ("Veal tortellini set up with foie gras and woodsy morels comes close to my idea of heaven," writes Tom.) http://wapo.st/nkqUmc

    The foie gras is just silly good. Served with house-made toasted brioche, I could eat that all day and night.

    ALWAYS get the pan-seared foie gras (if available). Chef Wiedmaier is absolutely amazing.

    Go here before a show at the Kennedy Center and treat yourself to a great meal and outstanding service. After the show, go back for the piano bar a single-malt. The best!
