From the same chef behind Adams Morgan haunt Mintwood Place comes Convivial, an American-French restaurant at City Market at O. Like Mintwood, Convivial has a French accent, though it’s a bit thicker. Dishes are hard to pronounce, like the squash vadouvan and boudin noire raviole. (The fried chicken coq au vin is not to be missed and a little easier to say.) If you get tripped up, your friendly server will help you decipher. The restaurant is, after all, called Convivial.
