According to Miami.com :

“The Who: New York restaurateurs Reststar Hospitality Group have opened a Miami outpost of their popular French chain (the original Bistro Cassis is in NYC’s Upper West Side). Lorraine, France-born chef Cyrille Bolle heads up the kitchen.
The Space: Located along midtown’s hectic restaurant row, the bistro does its best to conjure a leisurely spot in Paris with all the usual trimmings: chalkboard menus, antique framed mirrors, checkered floors and cushy red banquettes. Large photo murals of the Paris Metro, taken by partner Eric Machado, decorate the white subway tile walls. Even the bar is imported from France.
The Dishes: Straightforward bistro classics. Prices are reasonable with starters $10-$17 and mains $19-$36.” written by Sara Liss.


According to WSVN :

“The menu at Bistro Cassis is extensive and features some French classics. We sampled some of their greatest hits none of which disappointed. We got things started with a salad chevre ($13) mixed greens, roasted beets, candied walnuts, lavender honey dressing and pieces of crispy goat cheese. Like mussels? You’ve got 5 different styles to choose from, including the classic mariniere ($19) made with white wine and fresh herbs. Make sure you save a piece of the warm bread they bake in house at Bistro Cassis to dip into the sauce. The terrine de foie gras ($18) served with toast tips and a balsamic reduction, the New York strip steak frites ($34), the sole meuniere ($26) pan seared in a lemon butter sauce all taste like you’re in the South of France not South Florida. But for me the “pie’ce de re’sistance” had to be the poulet alsacienne ($23) a roasted chicken breast, with smoked bacon bits, kale, homemade spaetzle in a shallot cream sauce. It had to be one of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever had. The “poulet” was so juicy the whole dish just melted in your mouth with every bite. The crepe suzette finale complete with the Grand Marnier fire presentation was orange sweet, savory perfection.” written by Belkys Nerey.

 

According to Hedonist :

“Quietly opened in March 2015 at 118 Buena Vista Boulevard, Bistro Cassis Miami is the first South Florida restaurant for successful New York restaurateurs Reststar Hospitality Group, who have partnered with Miami hospitality veteran Horacio Oliveira (La Loggia) to bring classic French bistro cuisine to Midtown Miami. The 2,000 square-foot cafe seats a combined 74 guests indoors and out, with a welcoming bar as well as patio seating shaded by market umbrellas. The hand-crafted menu offers timeless French favorites transporting guests from South Florida to the South of France in a casual and comfortable setting. Bistro Cassis Miami is open daily for lunch and dinner with prices designed to attract repeat customers. The menu, created in New York and beloved by loyal patrons there, is interpreted in Miami by chef de cuisine Oscar Garcia. Chock-full of classic dishes like escargot and frog legs as well as more modern interpretations, the comprehensive bill of fare makes it easy to understand why French cuisine is revered worldwide. Dinner starts with complimentary Chicken Liver Pate accompanied by bread freshly baked in-house. Diners can begin their culinary journey with a selection of oysters, clams or shrimp from the raw bar or indulge in starters ($9-$17) such as steak or tuna tartare, grilled octopus and an assortment of salads.”
