Here's a little piece of France right in Coconut Grove, the former Bahamian immigrant district that is today a fashionable residential area.
Chef Christian Ville 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 filet mignon. One of the house specialities, duck legs in confit served with roasted potatoes cooked in duck fat and a cep mushroom sauce, available for dinner, 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.
