But behind the little room is a beautiful outdoor patio bathed in Florida sunlight. There, you can nibble on your duck... More »
We watched Veronique Leroux put together lunch from our table in the rear garden at Le Patio in Wilton Manors. There were no other people eating outside besides my partner and me, so Leroux had propped the back door open to give us a view inside... More »
