The dry, sweet fragrance from the sheaves of dried lavender and the long bowl of lavender buds in the entry are your first impression of Lavendou, the charming Provencal bistro that recently opened out north. The owners have gone to considerable trouble to re-create in the restaurant the sights and smells, as well as the tastes, of southern France, and now you can take a souvenir home with you. The table settings and vases of ochre-yellow pottery and the sunny flowered tablecloths, specially designed for the restaurant, are all for sale, so you can dine while you check out the merchandise.
