Wednesday, May 23 – La Gloutonnerie, 81 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach
High end Mexico City French restaurant Gloutonnerie debuts Wednesday, taking over the space that was vacated by Au Pied de Cochon. The almost $50,000 a month space has been totally renovated, which is an insane notion considering the Au Pied peeps spent a pretty penny on something that could barely make it out of the pen.Â Blending an incredible combination of “a touch of Mediterranean with a cozy Mexican vibe”, the menu will go for glutton, hence the name, with such dishes as steak tartare and beef cheek stew. There’s a reason they named the restaurant “Gluttony,” which actually does sound less offensive in French. Similar to their neighbor Estiatorio Milos, Gloutonnerie will have an in-house market to tempt the wealthy to take home a terrine of foie gras or a spread of charcuterie for a late night snack. Between this and lofty Greek restaurant Milos across the street, that’s one pricey corner of restaurant real estate.
