Lautrec’s stunning interior décor is almost as impressive as the unique delicious meal you’ll enjoy. Though the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant is situated in a wooded area in the Laurel Highlands of Southwestern Pennsylvania, the restaurant’s interior design suggests an entirely different vibe — one that will transport you far from Farmington, Pa. The décor here is bold, with deep red carpets, colorful draperies and luxurious carved wood walls. Lautrec’s chic and opulent design blends seamlessly with the restaurant’s American cuisine with a French twist, as you feel like you’re dining among royalty in Europe. The dining room’s tables are strategically spread throughout allowing for extra space, providing a more intimate Five-Star dining experience at Lautrec.
Lautrec restaurant is inspired by the life and artwork of French post-impressionist artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Images of the artist and details from his work are incorporated into the interior design from the walls, which are graced with six original museum-quality Lautrec lithographs, to the fine china. Lautrec’s design plays off of the Moulin Rouge, in Paris, which are Lautrec’s most famous posters. A hand-crafted gate welcomes you into a world of elaborate celling design, dramatic drapery and mirrored walls. Rich reds, deep purples and vibrant orange and yellow hues make for a romantic and intimate setting that is set aglow by candle light and custom lighting features. Dine in the main rotunda under the grand chandelier for a romantic dinner for two, in one of two private dining rooms alongside original Lautrec prints for private parties and special celebrations, or just off the main dining room where you can catch a glimpse of the chef at work. After dinner, stay for a nightcap at Lautrec’s Bar, just off the main dining room.
