For almost twenty years Lavandou has remained a charming French restaurant in Washington D.C.’s Cleveland Park neighborhood. Tucked in amongst unique storefronts on Connecticut Avenue, Lavandou's cozy glow and relaxed atmosphere lures its guests inside where they can enjoy fine southern French cuisine.<br /><br /><br />The cuisine at Lavandou is based on the essence and smells of Provence. This region along the French Riviera is famous for its rustic roots and uses only the most natural ingredients. Many of our dishes are created with tomatoes, roasted red peppers, eggplants and olives and are seasoned with fragrant garlic, rosemary, thyme and basil. These flavorful traditional dishes, prepared at length and with healthy, fresh ingredients are truly reflective of the Mediterranean style of “savior vivre.”<br /><br /> In the heart of Cleveland Park, Lavandou is conveniently located across from the Uptown Theater and close to the Cleveland Park (red line) metro stop.
