Dedicated to upholding the casual ambiance and meticulously presented cuisine found in the bistros of Paris, Bistro 1902's team of chefs channels French culinary traditions as they assemble Gallic dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With an eagle eye refined during 25 years spent forging fare in four- and five-star establishments across France—including the The Jules Vernes restaurant at the Eiffel Tower—the head chef inspects each dish for aesthetic quality and likelihood of revealing secrets before it leaves the kitchen. Culinary gurus bustle about the restaurant galley architecting traditional noshes such as crepes, escargots, and tarte tatins alongside updated classics such as a filet mignon and a foie gras burger.
The house’s creative burgers, baguettes slathered with sweet olive butter, and fresh scallops made the Sun Sentinel take notice, along with the chef's meticulous eye to tableside detail. Amid the dining room's exposed-brick walls laden with Parisian-themed art prints, affable servers wend in and out of tan-colored booths and sleek black tables to ensure that hungers remain sated and thirsts quenched. Meanwhile, staffers keep patrons hydrated as they refill goblets with selections from the extensive wine list, ensuring the perfectly paired washing down of decadent bites and the rinsing of hands after finger-painting re-creations of Monet's Water-Lily Pond on the tablecloth.
