Found in the heart of the Avondale neighborhood is a destination home to a wonderful collection of locally-owned businesses in a walkable, tree-lined setting.
We're talking about The Shoppes of Avondale, and since the 1920s, it has offered shops and restaurants such as:
Anita's Garden Shop
Since the 1980s, Anita's has provided a charming store filled with custom plantings that can add a splash of color to any home. It boasts a five-star rating on Yelp as everyone appreciates the unique designs and friendly service, and is where many locals shop for gifts. Flowers include daisies, hydrangeas, and calla lilies.
Hooshang Oriental Rugs
Sought after both locally and globally, Hooshang has served the community since 1977. It features the finest handmade oriental rugs from every weaving center in the world including Afghanistan, Romania, and China. The shop also offers professional cleaning and repair services, and the staff enjoys helping visitors find the rug that best suits their style.
Barrique Kitchen & Wine Bar
Barrique is derived from the Old World dialect meaning a small oak barrel used to make fine wine. Reminiscent of a century-old wine cellar, the restaurant offers a lively atmosphere and a staff that has an extensive food and wine background. The chef's small plate approach places emphasis on sharing and choices include oven-roasted oysters, goat cheese ravioli, and chicken wings. All of the dishes pair well with the thirty wines available by the glass.
When the mother and daughter team of Rosalie Guillem and Audrey Guillem-Saba decided to share French macarons with the world, La Macaron was born. All of the bakery's signature pastries are handmade by French chefs, and macaron flavors include bubble gum, Madagascar black vanilla, and strawberry key lime.
