Taste buds can easily turn into viciously passive-aggressive taste frenemies without proper attention. Keep your tongue from gossiping behind your back with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fine French cuisine and wine at Lemon Twist in Miami Beach. Lemon Twist is open for dinner Tuesday– Sunday.
Recently reopened and revamped, Lemon Twist showcases a bistro-style menu designed by French-trained chef Franck Hierholzer. Subtly elegant décor is adorned with lace curtains and garnet walls, offering a comfortable, mind-soothing backdrop for first dates and pre flu-shot noshing. Begin with a bowl of soupe a l’oignon (onion soup, $7.50) or escargots de bourgogne (snails in Burgundy sauce, $9.50) before migrating your mouth to a savory entree such as moules frites marinieres (mussels in butter and white wine broth, $18.50) or entrecote grillee frites (grilled rib-eye steak, $23.50). Bronzed crème brûlée ($7.50) helps chompers cool down after spirited feasts.
Daily Candy, Eater, and Urban Daddy featured Lemon Twist's second incarnation. Six Yelpers give the French bistro an average rating of four stars. Two Yahoo! Locals give Lemon Twist a perfect five-star rating.
- …this new incarnation feels like a warm, cushy mix of a European bistro and Audrey Tautou's living room (if memory serves you correctly). – Urban Daddy
- We also had the filet of tilapia with garlic and lemon peel—a dish light enough for the bathing beauties on the Cote D'Azur, yet filling enough for any jumpy jet setter. – Lesley Abravanel, Eater
