Avondale Food & Wine
French restaurant L’Olivier will soon become a new concept called Avondale Food & Wine. The new restaurant will serve as both a platform for chef Olivier Ciesielski to embrace a more diverse menu and allow for the addition of an all-new retail wine component overseen by local wine consultant Nate Rose. L’Olivier will serve its last meal on September 8. It will reopen as Avondale on September 13. The new restaurant will introduce itself to diners on September 12 with a special screening of Grand Cru, a documentary about winemaker Pascal Marchand, at the River Oaks Theater. Tickets are already available via Eventbrite for either the screening or the screening with bites and a wine tasting.
