Bistro Cacao


Bistro Cacao has been serving modern French cuisine to DC customers at their original Capitol Hill location since 2009. The restaurant was opened by long-time friends Chef Kemal Deger and restaurateurs Yavuz and Harun Bolukbasi. Bistro Cacao quickly became a neighborhood go-to and was named as one of the most “Romantic Restaurants in DC.” In 2017, the team suffered the tragic loss of Chef Deger, and Guven Dogan, a protege of Chef Deger and other globally trained chefs was given the reins to the kitchen. Today, Chef Dogan brings his own unique style and innovative culinary artistry to the restaurant and continues to watch over the kitchen with the same mindfulness of Chef Deger. With over 10 years of loyal customer support and accolades, Bistro Cacao moved to a new location in late January, 2020.  The new venue allows Bistro Cacao to expand its capacity for dinner, offer more private dining options and increase its focus on sourcing local and organic ingredients from nearby vendors.
