French American cooking is really the best of both worlds — on one hand, you get the delicious treats of foie gras and pâté, and on the other you have the option of an old-fashioned burger soaked with irresistible French flavors. In Miami, the restaurant doing French American cuisine best is db Bistro Moderne, thanks to the master himself. Chef Daniel Boulud has perfected the feel of a bistro with all the right American fixtures that we know and love (yes, even potpie is on the menu). Now, to celebrate summer and the classic American BBQ that goes with it, Chef Boulud is offering a complimentary glass of Bordeaux with any burger ordered during lunch or dinner. And this isn’t just any ordinary burger: The delectable decker is packed with red wine-braised short ribs and foie gras, tomato confit, and freshly grated horseradish sauce. Yeah, leave your PETA pals at home. You can order the burger solo for $32 or grab the prix-fixe menu option with an appetizer and dessert for just three bucks more. If there were a more appropriate time to say bon appétit, we’d be in France.
When: May 1 through July 30, lunch and dinner.
Where: db Bistro Moderne, 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way; 305-421-8800.
