Mediterranean Delights at Villa Mayfair
March 01, 2012 | by —MARIA TETTAMANTI | Homepage
Unequivocally cool Coconut Grove just got groovier with the opening of Villa Mayfair Restaurant & Lounge. Nestled within Miami’s most eclectic neighborhood, Villa Mayfair brings South of France sensibility, cuisine, and sounds stateside. Executive chef Frederic Joulin whips up Mediterranean delights such as branzino, sea scallops, rack of lamb, and filets. Interior designer François Frossard, whose past projects include The Forge, Mansion, and Opium, created a lush, living room feel replete with 1930s tile, a hammered-brass bar, and sexy Murano glass chandeliers that drip from the ceiling like crystal wax. C’est chic. 2901 Florida Ave., Coconut Grove, 305-774-1500
