L’Hommage Bistro Francais is the newest dining concept from restaurateur Hakan Ilhan, inspired by his weekend visits to Paris while attending university in the United Kingdom.

With seating for 200 inside, and another 82 on the outdoor patio, L’Hommage offers a casual and approachable French dining experience. L’Hommage works with local farms and food purveyors to bring the freshest meats and produce to L’Hommage for his take classic French dishes like steak frites and coq au vin.

In addition to the main dining room and lounge area, the bistro features a bakery, offering a full coffee menu, grab-and-go snacks and dinner entrees, and made-to-order sandwiches. Breads and pastries are prepared in-house daily. L’Hommage maintains a wine list of more than 200 bottle options, six wines and more than a dozen European beers on draft, as well as local beers and cocktails.

Ilhan also operates Alba Osteria in Washington, DC’s Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood and Al Dente near American University, in addition to his 135-seat sit-down French restaurant at Dulles airport, Bistro Atelier.
