While Miami may have an edge up when it comes to haute cuisine, any visitor can tell you that the city desperately lacks intimate, European-style bistros. When the deficit of affordable, casual dining in their new neighborhood became clear, the Parisian proprietors, Claude Postel and Callie Bienvenu, of this small, simple eatery took it upon themselves to open one.
The menu changes daily, but there are staples like escargot, lamb chops and seared scallops atop mashed potatoes. Rather than limiting fare to French, they delve into dishes more fitting to the locale like crab cakes and curries. And while some menu items don’t always deliver, the price is right and the ambiance, a breath of fresh air.
