Best Restaurant Triple Threat

The Ladies of LaV

This triumvirate runs the show at the Provençal-inspired French bistro and wine bar that brought fine dining to East Austin earlier this year. Advanced sommelier Vilma Mazaite oversees the excellent front-of-the-house service and makes well-educated pairings from LaV's 1,200-bottle wine cellar with the stellar French bistro classics emerging from chef Allison Jenkins' kitchen and the exemplary breads and confections of pastry chef Janina O'Leary. No disrespect to the Lady Longhorns, but these gals are simply the hottest women's team in town.
