This is without question one of the finest venues in the metroplex. Few eateries possess the inviting, warm pull this Provencal bistro exerts, from the sheaves of dried lavender that soak the place with a sharp, musky smell, to the brick arches that provide a gentle rustic edge. A cursory glance at the table makes it clear that everything touching it has been given painstaking attention, with food that is swept with imaginative, articulate flavors. Owned by Chez Gerard proprietor Pascal Cayet, Lavendou is what fine dining should be: romance, elegance and engaging flavors seamlessly orchestrated into a simple, highly expressive culinary experience.
