One of the most talked about restaurants in D.C. is sitting smack in the middle of the newly-developed Shaw district, and is a not-to-be-missed!
Convivial is the brain child of Cedric Maupillier who paired his expertise in French cooking with the light and “cheery” ambience foodies crave in the D.C. area. The dishes are smaller, which means they are perfect for sharing 2-3 or if you are a light eater, can feel satisfied with just 1-2!
What We Ordered: Since we didn’t want to be overstuffed, he ordered the Friend Chicken “Coq Au Vin” (which he highly recommends) and I ordered the Quinoa (which I also recommend). We also split the Creme Brûlée.
On a gluten-free friendly scale, this place is a 9 (mainly due to the slimmed-down menu). I definitely recommend making reservations for this highly busy place!
