Azul, Miami

500 Brickell Key Dr. , Mandarin Oriental
Miami , FL , United States http://www.mandarinoriental.com/miami/dining/azul/
(305) 913-8358

A fine dining favorite in Brickell, the acclaimed Azul is located inside Mandarin Oriental hotel and helmed by chef Joel Huff. Unveiled in July 2011, the restaurant's new menu features a blend of European, American, and Asian flavors. To start, a meticulous creation of cooked quail egg, caramelized onions, and herb-infused oil is a popular choice. Main dish options like brioche encrusted yellowtail snapper with cuttlefish redefines seafood in a most creative manner. Floor-to-ceiling windows that windows create a bright dining room with views of the Biscayne Bay.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Chef Paul Jean Azema’s bistro adds an idiosyncratic touch to the Buenos Aires restaurant scene, thanks to its menu of hard-to-find dishes from the Indian Ocean’s French colonies. The wine list emphasizes fresh whites (Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc) to go with the spicy food. In the dining room, a North African design scheme mixes with quirky objects like antique guns.

We loved: Jumbo-shrimp curry with L’Ille Bourbon spices.
