To kick-off 2016, Miami’s chic South of Fifth neighborhood welcomed a new culinary gem, French 27, and it’s got that “je ne sais quoi” French food lovers have been longing for. As its name implies, this contemporary, fine-dining concept takes diners on a culinary journey through the 27 regions of France, promising only the finest ingredients, most decadent creations and charming décor along the way.
Led by executive chefs Andreas Trilk and Yann Rio, French 27 has created an extensive menu that invites guests to start with Burrata cheese, which is imported fresh from France, and move on to classic French dishes like Escargots Tartiflette and French onion soup in a puff pastry, with Brie and Emmental cheeses – a recipe that has been passed down to Chef Andreas from three generations of his family’s master chefs. Filling the rest of the delectable menu is fresh seafood imported daily from all over the world, heart-warming soups, quality meats and enchanting entrées like Duo Duck Confit, which uses duck imported directly from France; Chilean Sea Bass; or the classic Steak Frites, which uses guests’ choice of 21- to 28-day aged New York or Bone-In Rib Eye and France’s famous Café de Paris butter. Pair it all with a glass of fine wine or the restaurant’s signature “27” cocktail, a mix of Veuve Clicquot and Bombay, and end the evening on a sweet note with an indulgent Crème Brulée infused with Jack Daniel’s, or a glass of Champagne en Rose: Veuve Clicquot Rosé, French rose wine, maraschino juice, berries and fresh rose petals.
No matter what you choose, French 27 will sweep you off your feet with its romantic vibes, enchanting décor and subtle French touches. With its soft lighting, fountain filled with fresh rose petals, floating candles, and of course, France’s impeccable cuisine, this luxe spot leaves guests feeling like they’re right in the heart of ol’ Paree.
French 27 is located at 850 Commerce Street. It is open Sunday through Thursday, from 6 to 11 PM, and Fridays and Saturdays, from 6 PM to Midnight. To make your reservation, call (305) 764–3948.
