Parc de Ville, the recently opened French bistro and wine garden in Fairfax’s Mosaic District, burst onto the Northern Virginia dining scene last winter. Settling into the space that once housed Gypsy Soul and Requin Brasserie, local restaurateurs Eric and Ian Hilton have imported the same formula that was so successful with their previous restaurant, Georgetown’s Chez Billy Sud. The bright and airy dining room is attractive enough for a romantic dinner date, but spacious enough (there are 100 seats across 5,000 square feet of space) that you won’t need to book a table months in advance.
Built around the prodigious talents of executive chef Brendan L’Etoile, the all-day menu features classic French standards like omelets, croque madames, onion soups, moules-frites, and duck confit. And of course, there is an impressive list of French wines, specialty cocktails, and imported and craft beers. Delivery and takeout are currently being offered. Bon appetit!
