Review: A Fortunate Feast: Lavendou Bistro Provençal May 2018
Pascal's first job was at Tour d'Argent in Paris, overlooking Notre Dame Cathedral and arrived in Dallas in the 1980's where he was one of the innovators for French cuisine. He was founder and owner of the famous French Country restaurant Chez Gerard on McKinney Avenue, which was one of Stanley Marcus' favorite restaurants. It was during a period of growth that Pascal moved his restaurant north, and then it was very far north, to his location on Preston just south of the George Bush Turnpike. Thus the birth of Lavendou, this slice of France located in a cozy shopping center.
