L’echon Brasserie, French Pubbelly Mix in Miami Beach

The Pubbelly Restaurant Group was founded in 2010 with the opening of the original Pubbelly Gastropub in the west side of Miami Beach. Andreas Schreiner, Sergio Navarro and Jose Mendin, the talented trio now opens their newest French Pubbelly style Restaurant at Miami Beach named L’echon Brassierie. It opened at the completely renovated Hilton Cabana Miami Beach hotel at 6261 Collins Avenue. Here is more information about L’echon Brasserie :

 

According to Eater :

“Opening at the Hilton Cabana Miami Beach hotel, the restaurant, a 150-seat Pubbelly-style French brasserie boasting an oceanfront outdoor patio and 2,500 square feet of indoor, outdoor and courtyard space, will be the trio’s seventh concept in just three-and-a-half years. A press release describes the space as having a rustic Pubbelly look, with subtle French bistro elements.” written by Ana Heretoiu.

 

According to Miami New Times :

“The restaurant, whose name is derived from the Spanish word for pork — lechón — and is Frenchified with an apostrophe, has a relaxed and cool vibe, but nothing particularly screams French brasserie. Why would the Pubbelly boys go after French cuisine? We always wanted to do a French restaurant, Schreiner says. It’s kind of every chef’s dream and the cuisine where everything kind of spawned from.” written by Dana De Greff

 

According to Miami.com :

“French classics with Pubbelly twists. The dinner menu is a bit all over the place, from bistro food like frisée aux lardon salad and duck confit to more fusiony hamachi crudo and grilled eggplant doused in garlic sauce. Starters average about $14 and mains range from $19 to $34. From the former category, check out the house charcuterie, foie Nutella toast and the pan-roasted veal brains in brown butter. Larger plates including comforting moules or steak frites as well as whole-roasted fish and a 34-ounce côte de boeuf. Pastry chef Maria Orantes finishes things off with s’mores gâteaux (really, a molten lava cake) and chocolate croissant bread pudding topped with banana ice cream.” written by Sara Liss.

 

According to Hungry Post :

“Mendin’s treats are abound with an extensive menu covering breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch, featuring freshly made pastries for breakfast, house made pates, charcuterie and sausages, wood fired grilled veggies, fish and meats and more. Utilizing his talented Executive Chef, Josh Elliott (EOS, db Bistro Moderne), who joined The Pubbelly Group in 2012 at PB Steak and then Pubbelly, Mendin beautifully demonstrates his interpretation of modern and classic French dishes with signatures such as an addictive Frisée aux Lardon salad with warm bacon vinaigrette, croutons, poached egg and tarragon dressing; buttery Raie à la Grenobloise (skate wing) with capers, pistachios, cranberries, croutons and brown butter; Confit de Canard – duck leg confit, charred carrots, carrot puree and ginger;  Raviolis de Lapin – rabbit dumplings with mustard crème, sauce vierge, olives, Florida basil salad and pine nuts; Modules Frites – mussels, celery, shallots, white wine, sauce beurre blanc and frites.”
