    Try the Bar Avignon Lemon Drop. There's a reason it's their signature drink. The touch of lavender-infused honey rounds out the edges for the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Just. try. it. Really.

    This is what every cliched European wine bar strives to be, complete with sprawling wine list, locally inspired (and constantly rotating) menu, and killer mussels. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The best place to eat and drink at Bar Avignon is perched at the bar, where you'll get a ringside view of the kitchen.

    They know their wine menu exceptionally well. Just tell them what kind of taste you're after, and they'll do the rest.

    Phenomenal foie gras agnolotti with pears. The liquified foie bursts in your mouth. Just amazing...

    The oysters are expensive, so get drunk enough to order them and jut regret the bill come morning.
