The elegant db Bistro Moderne is part of award-winning French chef Daniel Boulud's international culinary empire. This outpost, located in the sophisticated JW Marriott Marquis Miami, touts a menu of French American cuisine that incorporates the ingredients of South Florida. Executive Chef Matthieu Godard, who trained under Boulud, oversees the preparation of escargots and coq au vin as well as market-fresh red snapper with saffron risotto and ceviche with plantain chips. The cellar is stocked full of both French and South American wines to complement the kitchen’s offerings. Guests can nibble charcuterie and artisanal cheese beneath the dining room's lofty 16-foot ceilings and then retire to the bar and lounge for nightcaps. A street-level terrace with views of the Miami River is the perfect place to mingle in the fresh air or recall rafting adventures with Huckleberry Finn.
