As distinctly French as hundreds of varieties of gloriously stinky cheese and smoke-belching Peugeots, this cozy, comfortable brasserie not only looks the part but also delivers all the French culinary classics many of its less Gallic competitors dare not offer. Unfortunately not all are that successful, like the house signature steak frites, with tough, chewy meat and only passable fries. Much better are appetizers like a half portion of plump, succulent mussels in a white wine/shallot/garlic broth; vinegary potato/olive salad topped with creamy goat cheese; and savory profiteroles that will make you sing, "Oui, oui!"
Run, piggy, run is the phrase we'll be hearing in Coral Gables when Swine Southern Table & Bar opens at 2415 Ponce de Leon Blvd. in the former Les Halles space this fall. The restaurant will be... More »
Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover, and by the cover of Les Halles, the judgment is: We are sooo French. French as the 35-hour workweek, French as 10,000 handmade cheeses and gloriously crusty baguettes, French as sipping a glass of... More »
It's more than just a little bit unusual for a restaurant's grand opening to be announced by a banner that trumpets not only the date it commences business -- in the case of Le Marais Express, this year's Jewish holiday Passover, several months... More »
When Philippe Lajaunie, proprietor of Brasserie Les Halles in Coral Gables, greeted us recently at his 2002 choucroute dinner, he made several expected opening remarks. He defined the dish itself: shredded cabbage cooked in wine and juniper... More »
You'd think we'd been in Utah or something: Miami Shores is kicking up its heels over the first restaurant to win a beer-and-wine license since, well, ever. The Village Café has finally convinced the Village Council that Miami Shores is not Salt... More »
You can locate easily this restaurant because of the big french flag in front of it (Ponce de Leon blvd has flags from many countries). "Les Halles" is the name of the most central area of Paris, which was known as the "stomach of Paris", because of all the fruits and vegetables came here. Now it is a bug underground mall. As a frenchman, I tried the duck confit and I can say that it was typical french food, so I recommend it.
True to its origins, this Parisian bistro stocks a healthy number of red wines to counteract all those high-fat cheese and meat offerings. But the so-called French Paradox isn't what Brasserie Les Halles is all about. Indeed the eatery, which highlights different regions of France such as the Loire Valley and Alsace-Lorraine, offers an exceptional number of vins blanc as well. Looking for something appropriately matched to the rabbit roasted in mustard sauce? A cool Chateau de Maimbray... More »
Among the leisure class in 1789 France, heads rolled. Among the leisure class in 2002 Miami, the rolls get passed -- around a table. Quite appropriately French bread is served during Les Halles' Revolutionary Brunch, which carries the economical price of $17.89, in tribute to the year French peasants revolted. And the little people are treated regally to a multi-course affair. First with an effervescent pink kir royale (champagne with a touch of crème de cassis). Next with one of many... More »
