Like its namesake Lutetia,

the Roman predecessor

to modern day Paris, 

Lutèce is rooted in history & dreams.

Situated in the historic Georgetown neighborhood

of Washington, DC,
we serve modern & simple French cuisine

in a cozy setting while

celebrating local & 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.
