Last night, I had the rare opportunity to peek behind the curtain of the new, polished and pristine JW Marriott Marquis Miami. Scheduled for a grand opening this month, I was invited to test the db Bistro Moderne, a little gem of a french restaurant by James Beard Foundation award-winning chef Daniel Boulud. The concept is traditional French cuisine blended with flavors of the American market.
I wish I could tell you I was thorough enough to (stop, breathe, put the fork down and) take some pictures of the many varied perfectly prepared dishes we indulged in (grouper, steak, roast chicken, among a slew of appetizers that barely had names before being devoured by 3 individuals badly in need of a decent meal), but I did regain my sensibility by the time dessert came around. The JW Marriott Marquis Miami opens tomorrow. We hope to return to put a dent in that wine cellar soon.
