Antonio Bachour has built a reputation for creating desserts that are as beautiful as they are delicious. For his new bakery and restaurant, debuting today at 600 Brickell Avenue, he teamed up with former Eating House chef and partner Henry Hané to create a menu that exhibits his signature sweets like bonbons, macaroons,layered verrines, and tarts but also plenty of savory dishes like breakfast sandwiches, grain-based salads, open-faced sandwiches, housemade soups and veggie-heavy main dishes.
The space was designed by Hané's mother, interior designer Patricia Aballi. The 1,700-square-foot space with indoor and outdoor seating for about 70 features rustic orange metal lighting fixtures that hang from high-vaulted ceilings, stone walls decorated with bits of moss, along with dark wooden shelving housing an eclectic mix of pottery and plants. Slate colored high and low top tables, white stools and chairs, and large banquettes decorate the floor, and a wooden communal table for 10 sits at the end of the room. Take a look for yourself in the gallery below.
Bachour Bakery + Bistro is now open on the in the southwest corner of the Brickell World Plaza building at 600 Brickell Avenue from Monday through Friday from 7a.m. to 7p.m. and weekends from 7a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information call 305-330-6310.
