Pascal Oudin, known for contemporary takes on classic French cuisine, has opened his new bistro called Brasserie Central. The soft opening was done on November 17, 2014 and will officially open its doors to the public this Friday, November 21, 2014.
According to Miami
“ Brasserie Central is a concept I’ve wanted to execute for quite some time,” says Oudin. “Here, we are true to the authentic Parisian brasserie, making everything from scratch daily, with classic French recipes and methods – much like I used to enjoy in Paris.”

Sporting a casual, rustic elegance, Brasserie Central is Old World meets New World with exposed butcher block tables, bistro chairs, a 14-person communal table, large indoor/outdoor bar (seating 18) and le comptoir – the intimate oyster and raw bar. Along the walls, antiqued mirrors display the 24 regions of France while mammoth chalkboards don chef’s specials and cocktails. Modern lighting fixtures lead the eye down the long room, awash in woods, slates and hints of deep red, to an open kitchen and private dining room for 10.
On the menu: housemade sausages, pate and charcuterie; artinasal cheeses; full raw bar; traditional hors d’oeuvres, salads, sandwiches, and main plates; classic stove-to-table cocotte stews; and et Patisserie, or dessert.
Located under the bridge, across from Yard House, the restaurant will also offer abundant outdoor seating to enjoy Miami’s sweet summer breezes and delightful winters.Much like the interior, the design of Brasserie Central’s logo and other branding were created to capture the straightforward sensibility of a French brasserie. Tapped by Oudin to make this happen was veteran Venezuelan Graphic Designer Alexandra De Yavorsky of Atelier De Yavorsky, who demonstrates the image of classic French bistros through unpretentious and contemporary typography that is free of noise and communicates little other than crisp, honest French cooking from a French chef.
