When we last wrote about Palme d’Or, we were lavishing its Miami Spice menu with praise. After all, $39 for a meal at this five-diamond restaurant is an absolute steal. You know what else is a steal? The restaurant’s other tasting menus, which start at $115 for six magnificent courses.
Brunch is one of our favorite meals for two reasons: 1) It’s a sign of the weekend and 2) It’s delicious. At Le Zoo, the Stephen Starr restaurant inside Bal Harbour Shops, that second reason is especially true. The French brasserie injects the mid-day meal with Parisian flair and European flavors that will have you wishing the weekend didn’t have to end.
La Petite Maison has opened its first official U.S. location in Brickell, bringing its French-Mediterrenean cuisine with it. Judging by the crowds, the place is already a neighborhood hit, and it’s no surprise why: a generous menu and a beautiful space.
Have some friends in town? Need a place to take family? Just want a romantic night out? La Petite Maison has you covered.
Why does brunch have to be limited to the weekend? Bakehouse Brasserie, one of South of Fifth’s newest additions, is turning our favorite Sunday activity into a daily affair. Want brunch on a Tuesday? Craving brunch on a Thursday? This Parisian café has you covered.
When we think of great happy hours on Miami Beach, Semilla always comes to mind. Their Monday-Saturday specials are hard to beat: Deeply discounted beverages and bites draw droves to this modern gastropub on Alton Road and 13th Street. $6 tapas and cocktails? Count us in.
But while these specials get much of the spotlight here, there’s a ton of other satisfying selections to be had. Chef Frederic Joulin mixes French, Spanish and Italian influences to create an extensive menu that can please even the pickiest of eaters. Look beyond the happy hour selections, and your taste buds will be handsomely rewarded.
