Haute Dining: Retreat to Pied à Terre at South Beach’s Historic Cadet Hotel

Sometimes South Beach can just be too much. There. It’s been said. While there is a time and place for flash and excitement, there are also times to savor sustainable osetra caviar and smoked octopus under the stars and away from the chaos that South Beach is often susceptible to. Welcome to Pied à Terre at the historic Cadet Hotel.

The newly renovated Cadet has been given a stylish makeover while still retaining its vintage charm. Upon entry, the property immediately feels like a haven, tucked away on James Avenue, and Pied à Terre maintains this coveted vibe. Perfectly suited for everything an intimate dinner date to chatting with business associates – and being able to hear them – makes the restaurant a classy and impressive fine dining destination.

Complemented by strikingly elegant yet subdued décor, the retreat-like restaurant boasts a menu of stellar selections such as a sumptuous Hudson Valley Foie Gras, Local Triggerfish Ceviche, Trio of Kurobuta Pork, and a specially prepared Six-Course Chef’s Tasting Menu, from options that also include ever-changing dishes to reflect both local sourcing and seasonality. Top it all off with a masterfully mixed cocktail from their full bar or a selection from their extensive and finely curated list of impressive wines.

Pied à Terre is located at 1701 James Avenue, between Washington and 17th Street. For more information or to make reservations, call 305.531.4533 or visit www.piedaterrerestaurant.com.
