Like its namesake Lutetia, the Roman predecessor

to modern day Paris, 

Lutèce is rooted in history and dreams.

Situated in the historic Georgetown neighborhood

in Washington, DC,
we serve modern and simple French cuisine in a cozy setting while celebrating local and seasonal ingredients
from the surrounding region.

The result is a cuisine of simplicity, resourcefulness,
and originality – in the real neo-bistro style.
We aspire to highlight joyful wines
produced in a thoughtful manner.

natural, organic, and biodynamic practices. We believe in eating well and drinking well, too.
