Do you love Le Diplomate but sometimes find it’s hard to grab a table? Why not head over a bit early in the afternoon and enjoy the restaurant’s patio? You can now enjoy this option as Le Diplomate has launched its new L’Apero program.
From 4:00 – 6:00 pm Monday through Friday, the L’Apero program is Le Diplomate’s answer to Happy Hour. What better way to start the evening with an aperitif and some small bites at one of 14th Street favorite dining spots?
Although Le Diplomate has a full range of wines, beers and spirits available out on their patio, opt for one of their specialty cocktails. These are the perfect aperitifs to sip to enjoy while basking outside. Also included on the menu is their frosé, which prior to this program was not always available. Enjoy it now. It is a real crowd pleaser.
There’s a nice selection of l’apero dishes to compliment your cocktails. From the sinful foie gras macrons to the more hearty French onion poutine, there’s a bit of something for everyone. Their fruits de mer choices feature a variety of seafood options including platters that can feed groups up to 6 people. And you can never go wrong with their selections of meats, cheeses and breads. Watch out for the gougères! You’ll want to pop a lot of these French cheese puffs!
Men’s Life DC recommends sitting in the back patio under the fans to enjoy a light breeze. Suggest it as a great meeting location to gather and people watch prior to heading out for dinner. What’s nice is that no reservations are needed and once you there, you can stay an enjoy Le Diplomate’s full dinner service.
