Brasserie Central, the latest offering from acclaimed chef Pascal Oudin and one of Miami's most anticipated openings, is ready to (soft) open its doors today. In keeping with the chef/owner's first successful eatery, Pascal's on Ponce, Brasserie Central will offer up French fare with more affordable price points at the Village of Merrick Park (320 San Lorenzo Avenue in Coral Gables).
"Brasserie Central is a concept I've wanted to execute for quite some time," says Oudin, adding that "here, we are true to the authentic Parisian brasserie, making everything from scratch daily, using classic French recipes and methods." The eatery officially opens this Friday, November 21.
The menu, also overseen by executive chef Fabien Micard, boasts items made with high-quality imported and local goods like housemade sausages, pate and charcuterie; artisanal cheeses; a full raw bar; traditional hors d'oeuvres, salads, sandwiches, and main plates; classic stove-to-table cocotte stews; and desserts. But we'll let the menu speak for itself. Check it out below.
