Two Chefs is a restaurant that promises to deliver clean and exciting dishes made with ingredients that charm the palette. It has been around since 1994 and offers a menu that changes weekly.
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.
Chef Jan Jorgensen creates weekly menus that feature local and seasonal dishes complemented by his legendary signature plates and famous towering soufflés. He is a native of Copenhagen and arrived in Miami in the early Nineties.
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.
