Petite Cerise is the second restaurant from the creators of The Dabney.
Inspired by their travels and love of classic French technique, the pair are excited to share the spirit of France with their community in DC. Part casual neighborhood café, part energetic bistro, Petite Cerise is located in a bright and lively historic corner space in Shaw/Mount Vernon Triangle. The restaurant and its menus were built to encourage the French way of living and enjoying life, or “joie de vivre,” and welcomes diners to slow down and savor their meal with any-time-of-day dining.
Petite Cerise features separate menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, each built upon the values the pair find to be truly French: integrity of ingredients and technique and an appreciation for culinary history and traditions. Whether you join us for a morning coffee and crepe, stretch out your lunch over a glass of wine, or gather with friends for an indulgent dinner, we invite you here to celebrate and enjoy.
