Led by chef de cuisine Vincent Benoliel, Le Boudoir's kitchen curates a menu of traditional bistro-style French cuisine alongside a generous selection of delicate sippables. Within a sleek, modern atmosphere, diners can tempt taste buds with esculent selections, such as escargot with melted brie ($7.50) and quiche lorraine with ham, swiss cheese, and bacon ($12.95). Show love to concoctions of ingredients and passing waiters by hugging them with arms of dough while gnawing on a panini filled with prosciutto, mozzarella, and pesto ($10.50).
Additionally, Le Boudoir has an evolving selection of exclusive entrees, such as steak tartare, shrimp and scallops normande with rice, and filet mignon drizzled in a green-pepper corn sauce. Diners can round out their French experience by tasting a selection of wines and champagnes by the glass or bottle and building elaborate toothpick sculptures of Marseilles.
With the deft hands of a veteran baker, Vincent Benoliel keenly measures almonds, eggs, and sugar, because accuracy is essential when making macarons. The ephemeral sweets come in a rainbow of colors and might taste of chocolate, rose petal, or lemon, but every single one has that je ne sais quoi of a macaron made by a native Frenchman. Vincent grew up in France's ubiquitous restaurant industry, ascending to the rank of sous chef in a Parisian brasserie when he was only 18. In 2005, he brought the richness of French cuisine to South Florida by importing the Eiffel Tower in 3-pound chunks and by opening Le Boudoir in Miami. His handiwork includes delicacies such as escargot, steak tartare, and fresh pastries.
