Here's a little piece of France right in Coconut Grove, the former Bahamian immigrant district that is today a fashionable residential area.
The chef, Christian, arrived in Miami in 1998, after having trained with French greats Troisgros and Bocuse. The decor of this small restaurant evokes the great bouchons of Lyon, with red-and-white checked table settings. The menu offers typical French dishes: gratinée lyonnaise, snails, beef bourguignon, foie gras, and duck confit. The house specialty, farm chicken fricassee à l'ancienne with morel risotto, served in the evenings, is exquisite.
If you're still hungry, try a tarte Tatin or a crème brûlée.With a little imagination, you just might believe you're in France.
