Lenoir attacks all your senses—in a good way: the walls of the dainty space are draped in antique lace; wine glasses full of every shade of champagne, pink, and red fill the room; and spicy aromas waft from the kitchen. Husband and wife team Todd Duplechan and Jessica Maher are creating ever-changing prix fixe courses they refer to as “hot weather food”—flavors inspired by the cuisine in hot climate regions. Influences come from Morocco, India and Southeast Asia…think spicy, citrusy and light on butter and cream. The wine list offers selections from a variety of wine regions (with an emphasis on France and Italy), and the team sources their ingredients almost exclusively from Texan farmers and artisans. Be sure to visit their Wine Garden—an equally lovely outdoor space with a menu of small bites.
