My dining companion was Miss G. who always lends her well-honed taste buds and opinions. Upon entering, the decor was chic without being chichi, quietly elegant with an impressive wine bar. The menu changes all the time so we tried different dishes, all of which were modern interpretations of classical favorites.

We tasted  Coulibiac . It was a very pretty dish of Russian origin made with layers of rice, salmon and spinach, all wrapped in pastry. It was a very interesting combination of textures – the soft rice, the flaky salmon, the creamy spinach and the crunchy pastry made it a tasty package.

The Coulibiac was served with Garden Greens, a salad that was very kind to the palette and made with Blue Cheese, Heirloom Tomatoes and a Caper–Lemon–Dijon Vinaigrette.

The star of the meal was the Chocolate Soufflé, “Chocolate Bon Bon”, an absolute work of art that kept bombarding the mouth with explosions of pure chocolate with each bite. It was served with Crème Anglaise and Chocolate Ganache, adding more decadence to this dessert.

Two Chefs Restaurant is quite an iconic place in Miami and has survived despite changing trends and fickle diners. It even features a Cooking School where Chef Jorgensen gets to share his expertise and love of fine cuisine.

It is on the pricey side though, so come prepared with a big wallet.
