This French brasserie from Stephen Starr not only offers a charming interior, but also plenty of al fresco seating in a palm tree-covered patio inside the Bal Harbour Shops. The menu is filled with plenty of classic French selections like steak tartare du parc, duck confit, truffle pizza, and the bouillabaisse — all of which can be complimented by the extensive selection of wines.

La Fresa Francesa
Hialeah may be known for its Cuban food, but French restaurant La Fresa Francesa is quickly changing that perception. Husband and wife duo, Benoit Rablat and Sandy Sanchez, serve up French dishes such as the baked fromage with white wine and shallots, French salted butter crepes, and the fan favorite: overnight braised rabbit leg. And for those that stop by on Thursday nights, guests can even enjoy live music with their dinner.

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon
Having received two Michelin stars this year, the late chef Joel Robuchon’s namesake restaurant has become a culinary destination in Miami. The French menu features both a la carte options or tasting menus options with meticulously created dishes by several longtime proteges of the famed chef.

Patrons can enjoy lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch, and happy hour indoors or in its tropical outdoor area.

After a two year hiatus, Bagatelle is back and offering the taste (and party) of the French Riviera. Expect bright dishes at this lively restaurant like the wild scallop ceviche with olive oil and lemon flavors, crispy fish fritters with arrabbiata sauce, and steamed turbot fish with caramelized clementines. Finish off the meal with either the dark chocoalte fondant souffle or the crepes with caramelized pistachio.
