Dessert lovers across South Florida jumped for joy when it was announced last year that one of the city's most acclaimed pastry chefs Antonio Bachour was teaming up with former Eating House chef Henry Hane to open up Bachour Bakery and Bistro in Brickell.
But details were few and far between – until now.
The restaurant has officially begun construction for its 1600-square-foot space at 600 Brickell Avenue and aims to open "hopefully in October," says Hane.
Hane describes the concept to Eater Miami as, "contemporary bakery and bistro" saying menu influences will be coming from all over the world. Of course plenty of Bachour's trademark desserts will be available like his verrines, macaroons, marshmallows, pastries and breads, with a whole section devoted to larger format, special occasion cakes.
But sweets aren't the only thing on the menu, plenty of savory dishes will be offered as well with a "healthier" focus. Think open-faced sandwiches, grain-based salads, house-made soups and salads.
The restaurant will have the option of taking your food to-go along with table service. It'll be initially open for breakfast and lunch, Hane says, with plans to open up for dinner down the line. Stay posted for more details and official opening dates.
