This quiet and very private first floor restaurant is the perfect place to get away for an important, high powered lunch meeting. The French menu offers some of the most flavorful and rich fish dishes in the downtown area. Gerard`s Place has recently acquired newcomer sous chef Lise Nakamura who recently graduated from L`Academie de Cuisine -- and is rumored to be one of the next great chefs of Washington D.C.
