As the swanky sister to master French chef Daniel Boulud’s famous New York restaurant, db Bistro Moderne, this Miami institution offers elegantly presented French bistro classics in a cool, contemporary setting. Soaring ceilings, a hushed color palette and plush furnishings lend an ambience of charming sophistication, in keeping with the restaurant’s five-star home in the luxurious JW Marriott Marquis hotel in Downtown Miami. Three dining areas provide distinctly different aesthetic experiences, from the white-washed oak floors and distressed leather of the central dining room, to the rich warmth of the persimmon room, to the cosy intimacy of the smaller private dining rooms. db Bistro’s soaring wine tower serves as a dramatic backdrop to the glass-lined dining space. Artistically presented specialties include the richly flavoured bouillabaisse, perfectly grilled prime rib with foi gras, the herb roasted chicken, and savory short ribs braised in red wine. The iconic db Burger boasts a prime ground sirloin stuffed with short ribs, foi gras and black truffle, nestled inside a perfect parmesan bun. Don’t miss a taste of db’s exquisite madeleines, softly dusted in powdered sugar and served tucked into a crisp white napkin. Bookings advised.
