Chez Billy Sud Opens in Georgetown

Eric and Ian Hilton, Washington, DC’s very own restaurant superstars, open Chez Billy Sud in Georgetown today replacing the old Cafe La Ruche. The Southern France influenced restaurant gets its name “Sud” from its location to the south of the original Chez Billy in Petworth.

Why Georgetown?

“Around the city, we have led the charge to bring great dining in burgeoning neighborhoods, Petworth among them,” said Ian Hilton. “While Georgetown is already very much on the map, we believe there is still room for growth when it comes to dining options.”

Chez Billy Sud currently has 60 indoor dining seats, and will serve lunch and dinner daily and offer the essential weekend brunch. However, they already have plans to expand, taking over the next door space as well.


If their opening is any indication of what this restaurant is going to be like, then make a reservation right away. Make sure to check out the large and absolutely adorable patio while it’s still nice enough to sit out!

Eric and Ian Hilton get it right yet again.
