La Rue 123, web site (music), 4023 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA, 703-691-2266 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [WaPo]
Near Le Tire Bouchon and in the old Bailiwick Inn.
Classic French, they go out of their way to be boring but the quality is high. I tried the beef tenderloin, the shrimp, and the sea bass. All were excellent, I liked the sea bass best. A good place to take clients or job market candidates, especially if others are paying. Not my kind of thing, but some people will love this place.

If you’d like to dine in a french restaurant don’t even think about this place. No class, no french, no dress code. People wearing shorts and flip-flops get better treatment than anybody else.
Reservation means nothing – we just left disgusted.
