Hailing from the city of Lyon, France comes the now (kinda) open Plethore et Balthazar, or P&B for short, on the first floor of South Beach's Hilton Bentley hotel where De Rodriguez used to be.
The menu features a mashup of classic French and Spanish-inspired cuisine from executive chef Diego Amat Lopez, who helped open the original location of P&B in Lyon. Expect to see dishes like steamed mussels, paella, lobster thermidor, steak and 'frites' and the Florida-inspired Key Lime Pie.
The space has gotten a revamp since its De Rodriguez days, courtesy of French interior designer Raymond Morel, with leather walls, graffiti columns and whole lot of black and white houndstooth print.
While its grand opening party isn't until October, according to the press release, the space is already open daily from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. for breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour — and is even offering a Miami Spice menu. For more information call 305-672-6624.
