I had dinner at La Ferme in Chevy Chase Saturday night. Of course, it's always fun for me to eat out when I'm not working because I don't have to taste anyone else's food, and more important, I don't have to share....
I can order exactly what I want and not what the restaurant thinks is its specialty.
I recommend La Ferme if only for the beautiful covered porch where we ate.
It's a traditional French restaurant, from the sweet butter with baguette that begins the meal to the souffle that can end it. (I wasn't sure I could get that far so I didn't order it when you're supposed to, when you order your dinner.) The day's special, rack of lamb with green and white beans was great, and I also had a fine house salad; but if you're looking for innovative food this won't be the place for you. It's about a mile from Chevy Chase Circle in a charming residential district.
