Since 1964, Chez Andrée has been known for country French Cuisine. Stanley and Andrée Lecureux opened the restaurant in what was originally a "railroad bar" that serviced the nearby Potomac Yards. Today Potomac Yards is populated with stores, but in the past it was a large rail yard. In those days the restaurant was known for a sign out front that read: “shirts and shoes required."
Today son Steve Lecureux and his sister Laurence Matrat are in charge, now that their parents have retired. And the restaurant has grown much larger and fancier, including the bar area with a large classic wood bar facing a spectacular mural that looks like a scene from Moulin Rouge.

Steve is often near the front door, and seems to remember the name of just about every patron who shows up. Not just a favorite with locals, there are others who travel quite a distance to make their repeat visits here. Some come for one of the signature dishes, steak au poivre, a New York strip sautéed with fresh cracked peppercorns and shallots. Or they chose the tournedos Henri IV, broiled filet mignon wrapped in bacon, crowned with an artichoke bottom, and topped off with béarnaise sauce. Fresh seafood is a specialty. Fresh fish dishes might include poached salmon, depending on what day it is.
Specialties include duck l’orange, rack of lamb, and chicken livers. A wide selection of wines comes from the wine cellar, including many from California and France. Desserts include fruit tarts, ice cream, chocolate mousse, and crème caramel.
