A Restaurant - Design District

A is a quiet restaurant that has a loyal neighborhood following and is also gaining recognition from Miami food writers. The food is organic, the style of cooking is French and seasonal and the atmosphere is laid back. Another great perk is that you can bring your own wine and drink to your heart's content. That's right, it's BYOB with no corkage fee!
We tried the tofu and mushroom dish (above) with at least 4 different types of mushrooms and flageolet beans it was hearty and satisfying. The grilled avocado stuffed with spinach was delicate and creamy. We also tried the poached pears with Gorgonzola and the homemade sausages. Prices are $8-$16, very affordable for such inventive cuisine.

Adress is 4582 NE Second Ave, Design District. (305) 572-9902.

A's a nice place. "Quiet" sums it up perfectly. The food was a little spicy for my tastes, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I agree - they aren't afraid of a little spice, but then again, neither am I! What did you have?

Is it veggie-friendly?

i had the meatloaf and Shawn had the shittake mushrooms. i completely cleaned my plate. Shawn's sister came with us and has been raving about the avocado ever since.

Anon- it is indeed a good veggie place, with a nice variety of options. Only a few vegan selections though.
Elad - the avocado is truly rave-worthy.
