Au revoir, Les Halles, you were a great lunch spot for the downtown office crowd.

Now where will we go? This is old news, but Les Halles (the DC location) closed up shop mid November. The reason? High rent. After fifteen years, the increasing commercialization of Penn Quarter that has driven up prices, almost doubling LH's rent, has caused them to fold. Sadness.

The spot was great for hanger steak frites and waiters who smell and speak French. You may also know the restaurant for the exploits of its famous (and my favorite celeb) chef, Tony Bourdain.
