A reader reports:

“Just got an email from Groupon that my voucher to Bistro La Bonne (the re-opened one on 14th and Chapin), which was set to expire in April, is only valid through the 19th of this month, at which point the business is closing. Their website and facebook don’t say anything about a closing.”

La Bonne Bistro’s website says:

“Chef Daniel Labonne of the Embassy of France, has partnered with CREME to create a warm and inviting neighborhood bistro with authentic French and Belgian cuisine that will make you want to return again and again.

He takes over dinner while CREME concentrates on delighting patrons on weekends with their mouthwatering southern fare brunch & bottomless mimosas. This unique space sharing keep things interesting with new menu items and specials. It’s all about balance: a space nice enough to make you feel at home, a warm welcome you’d expect from a friend, the best service possible for every person who walks through the door, great food and good wine without pretense, keep the conversation flowing.

At La Bonne Bistro, every dish is created using only the freshest, finest ingredients. You’ll thoroughly enjoy whatever you choose from the scrumptious menu. So checking back will ensure you discover new tastes.”

Updates when more is known.

    I am shocked the spot lasted this long. The place is always empty…..

      +1 Always deserted. I went for brunch once and it was delicious, always meant to go back more… always fearing this would come. Seems like a good spot for something to open, but then most of the commercial on that strip between Chapin and W seems to have a hard time tacking root.

    The biggest news here is that Groupon is still around

    Creme had to be one of the worst restaurants I have been to. The fact it is still open only fuels the idea it’s a money laundering enterprise. How can it stay open serving 3 people a week??

      I had many good meals when they were on U Street. The new location just didn’t work.

      I’m astonished that you would call it “one of the worst restaurants I have been to” not to mention that you would then attribute that to the absurd notion that “it’s a money laundering enterprise.”

    We used to live by the side of this restaurant where we could see in their kitchen side window … it was hard not to notice the huge boxes of Aunt Jemima pancake mix on on the shelves. That’s what they would use to make a $15 plate of pancakes or waffles.
