The who: A 24-hour French brasserie that is the sister restaurant to six successful locations in Brazil, Paris 6 Miami marks the arrival of the concept in the U.S. The menu is executed by Venezuelan-born and Spanish-trained chef de cuisine Atilio Padra.
The space: Designed by Miami firm Saladino Designs, the venue is reminiscent of the Woody Allen film “Midnight In Paris,” with red, studded banquettes, oversized black-and-white portraits and gilded framed mirrors.
The dishes: Traditional French brasserie fare. The epic menu covers typical breakfast favorites, appetizers, lunch specials, “grand salads,” premium burgers, pastas and risottos, poultry and meats, and desserts. Prices are reasonable with starters $9-$19 and mains $18-$42.
Dishes include Green Goddess Caesar Salad, crepes with a variety of fillings, and half a dozen pasta dishes, including a Ravioli De Chevere, fettucini with champagne sauce and truffle risotto. French staples such foie gras, duck confit and bavette steak are also available.
Desserts please with classics such as creme brulee, profiteroles and the “Grand Gateau,” made of a chocolate molten cake topped with fruit and an ice cream bar.
Bottom line: A sophisticated pre- or post-clubbing spot.
