The Review | Pinot Provence in the O.C. has a new chef
Pinot Provence in Orange County once had high ambitions and served truly Provençal food, but more recently restaurateur Joachim Splichal has seemed content to position his sixth restaurant as a standard bistro with a standard menu.
Now, though, Pinot Provence has a new chef. She's Laurent "Lulu" De Rouen, who grew up in Manhattan Beach, the daughter of a New Orleans-raised Frenchman.
