Le Jardinier · Miami

Eye Candy

In this edition of The Weekend Edit, we’re in the Miami Design District to see why plant-driven 

Le Jardinier earned a Michelin star this year, drop 

into San Francisco’s Rich Table to learn how Chef Evan Rich makes his black truffle peaches-and-cream dish, and present Dorsia’s curated gift guide with 

speciality items, custom merch, and foodstuffs from some of our favorite restaurant partners.  Cheers!

Three Dishes: Le Jardinier Miami

We’d wager the incognito magistrates behind the Michelin Guide knew Le Jardinier Miami would earn a coveted star before they even crossed the threshold. It’s true that we eat with our eyes first, and to step foot in the jewel box of a space is to be instantly transported into the visionary world of French interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. The restaurant is eye candy, an Art Deco-meets-modernist warren of kelly greens and gleaming black marble.

The Francophile menu by Chef Alain Verzeroli presents vegetables as haute art, from the golden beets served with red beet mostarda and goat cheese drizzled in herbal oil to the mushroom velouté in parsley emulsion and sourdough croutons. Don’t miss the citrus cheesecake with graham crumbs and white chocolate for dessert.
Below, three more standout dishes to try.

Beef Tartare
Wagyu beef with nasturtiums and capers, topped with potato chips and spicy aioli.

Heritage Chicken
Served with chimichurri and roasted Brussels sprouts.

Chicha de Vie
Armagnac Blanche, Chicha Morada, lime, and clarified milk punch topped with dehydrated pineapple.
