It's not everyday you can be transported to Paris without stepping foot out of Miami. But that's just what the folks at Buena Vista Bistro set out to do: bring a bit of France to the heart of Miami. The ambience will have you reminiscing about your favorite Parisian eatery—or nudge you into finally planning your first trip. From Parisian-inspired streetlamps to the graphic mural and complementary lighting, indeed the newly revamped patio at BVB exudes French sensibilities from the very get go.
Not all the attention was reserved for the patio. Just as impressive are the new banquette and nostalgic French prints added to the usually black and white wall of neighborhood snapshots.
"The posters definitely add that infusion of color," said the French-born chef, Claude Postel, owner of the bistro many has credited with sparking an economic revitalization of the NE 2nd Avenue Corridor when it first opened in 2008.
"We wanted to ensure we maintained that cozy, neighborhood atmosphere," Postel said, "but we also wanted give our loyal customers a little something new. With the changes we've made, even I sometimes feel like I'm right back in Paris."
But it's not all fluff and no substance so commonplace in the industry. The menu remains enviable amongst even the most expensive South Florida restaurants.
"Well when we started I wanted to make sure we never ever compromise on quality, freshness or taste," Postel said. "It is important at we continue to serve our customers the very best for very least. That's what value is all about; that's what this bistro is all about."
That's just one reason Postel goes to the market everyday, to ensure topnotch freshness and quality. It's a quality that can be found in award-winning dishes like Tuna Tartare, curry chicken and homemade hand-cut French fries.
"Listen," said Postel with an unwavering confidence, "where else in Miami can you get a three-course meal for under $10?” It’s a point well taken as lunch menu to which Postel alludes includes Soup du Jour, choice of main course—and Dessert du Jour.
