Lavomatic to open in February (hopefully)

I’m hoping this blog doesn’t sound like an ad for Jean-Robert’s restaurants, but I can’t help that he’s constantly opening and reinventing his restaurants. This one particularly excites me, as it’s in my neighborhood of Over the Rhine.

The Business Courier reports that Lavomatic is slated to open February 1st, “hopefully”, says Martin Wade, one of du Cavel’s business partners. The menu will feature global, rustic, French-inspired food that won’t be stuffy or formal, along with 75 wines by the bottle and 28 wines by the glass, selected by the Downtowner’s wine columnist, sommelier Burke Morton, who also runs front-of-house.

The owners of Metronation hinted that, perhaps, it will be connected to Lavomatic, so you can browse while you wait, particularly on Sunday mornings (do I sense brunch?). I’ll be interested to check out a restaurant within quick walking distance– will you head to OTR to try it out?
