- About Us -

Growing up, my friends begged their parents for candies-- I'd ask mine for prosciutto. My love for charcuterie later informed my career path, leading me to a role as a marketing manager in charge of cured meats for a large French retail chain. The best part of the the job was meeting the artisans who made these products; they were devoted to using traditional methods in order to achieve the highest quality.

In 2013, I moved from my home country of France to be with my DC-born husband here in his hometown. Since moving to the area, I'd been searching for a place that reminded me of home-- a place to unwind, drink a glass of wine, and share a charcuterie board with my friends. When I realized I wasn't going to find the place I was looking for, I decided that this was my chance to take my lifelong passion and turn it into something incredible. And so, with the help of my husband and a dear friend, La Jambe was born.

La Jambe is a small independent business-- the product of a dream and a lot of hard work. We are a neighborhood bar where patrons can experience the best of the Old World in an intimate space without any pretension. Our mission is to expose guests to the French palate through a carefully curated menu of wine, charcuterie, and cheese. Perhaps our passion for charcuterie will become yours as well. We hope you'll come give us a try.

So happy this place opened in my neighborhood! I wrestled with writing a review because i don’t want it to get too popular - but the service, wine, atmosphere and food definitely deserve a five star review.

The intimate and energetic space opened in late June and feels right out of Paris, and the menu only reinforces that feeling.
— Urban Scrawl DC
This charming wine bar in Shaw offers lovingly curated French vins, cheese, charcuterie, sandwiches and light bites like housemade walnut pesto toast in an airy space dominated by a handsome bar and spritely, punk-inspired wall art.

This place is so Shaw, you guys... This incredibly hip wine bar is a Francophile’s dream come true with an entire menu of French wines, cheese and charcuterie. The wine list is vast with many offerings by the glass, and plenty of rosé to keep you sipping happy all summer long...I predict this will be the “it” place to be very soon.
— KACY (via Bad Sentences)
Finally, the much anticipated La Jambe is open, and it’s certainly all it was cracked up to be, and more! La Jambe is a French wine bar that just opened up in Shaw. The owner, who is French, has clearly carefully curated a wine, charcuterie, and cheese menu that is absolutely to die for. [...] The wine list is fantastic, and you absolutely cannot go wrong with any of the boards. Definitely get the rillettes! As if this place wasn’t already great, they have a killer happy hour with $5 wines. I can’t wait to go back!

Unlike other spots where you pick three or five meats and cheeses from a long list of choices, La Jambe curates each board itself and then offers them in small, medium, and large sizes. The idea is to give people things that actually go together and get them to discover products they’re less familiar with. Even the accompaniments are specifically tailored toward each board.

La Jambe legit. How so? In the El Solian way of “A Real Mexican Restaurant Run by Real Mexicans Cooking in the Kitchen”. The owner is French and she has created a spectacular space.
