Brasserie Azur is now open at Midtown Miami.
Brasserie Azur comes to us from the guys behind Villa Azur Restaurant & Lounge on Miami Beach. At Brasserie Azur, you could find French fare with Mediterranean influences.
Brasserie Azur’s lunch and dinner menu will feature menu items like a butterflied whole grilled branzino with fennel and lemon; roast beef slices au jus served with homemade mashed potatoes; and the chicken paillard marinated with lemon herbs, served with arugula and cherry tomato salad. For dessert, guests can have dishes like the pistachio macaron, the tiramisu tart, and the caramelized meringue lemon tart.
Brasserie Azur will also host a weekend brunch with egg dishes including the classic Oeufs Bénédicte, and beloved hamburguers, like the Brasserie Azur, with pan seared Foie Gras and truffle dressing. Guests will have the option of bottomless mimosas for $25.
You can see all the menus and find more info about Brasserie Azur here.
Another edition to the Miami River is Seasalt and Pepper.

Seasalt and Pepper will have three kitchens, including one with a wood burning oven.
Some of the items on the menu include: grass fed ribeye steak; veal chop; octopus tenders–marinated octopus with homemade aioli; braised squid and baby artichoke with roman smoke tomatoes and feta cheese; duck confit salad served over mache greens, heart of palm, lotus root chips in a champagne raspberry vinaigrette; wood fired casseroles including Long Island Baby Clams with cherry tomatoes, basil, jalapenos and white wine and Alaskan black cod with braised fennel, broccolini and Pernod.

We look forward to welcoming Seasalt and Pepper to Miami.
The Pubbelly Group is at it again.
Partners Andreas Schreiner, Jose Mendin and Sergio Navarro will soon be running food and beverage operations at the Hilton Cabana Miami Beach and will also be home to their latest restaurant.
“We will run pool service and room service for the hotel, but the restaurant, called L’Echon, will be our main focus,” says Mendin. The restaurant will be, as Mendin puts it, “a Pubbelly-inspired brasserie.”
The hotel is schedule to open later this year and until then that is all the information we know.
L’Echon Brasserie will be a sharing-style concept with classic French dishes and Pubbelly-style environment. L’Echon Brasserie will be located at 52nd and Collins Avenue inside the Hilton Cabana Miami Beach.
Look for more details soon.
