On a balmy Saturday afternoon, we sat down to have lunch outside at the outdoor-covered bar, under the fans. The diners around us were from all over: we heard German, French, Italian and Polish being spoken, among other languages. It was like stepping into another country just for a little bit – we could pretend that we had left Miami and landed in some other part of the world.
The lunch menu at L’echon Brasserie is not as extensive as the dinner one. Nevertheless, we managed to eat enough until our bellies were as big as basketballs.
We started off in style with a Maine Lobster Cocktail. It was half a Maine lobster served with French cocktail sauce and warm butter.
Then we had the Ceviche Du Jour – I would be lying if I told you what fish it was made with, I forgot to ask. All that I know is that it was good, very good.
The Grilled Mahi Sandwich was another hit – brioche bun, plantain “bbq” sauce, mojo onions, heirloom tomato and bibb lettuce. My little one ordered the Hamburger from the kid’s menu and got 2 little sliders, also served in a brioche bun.
The desserts were different: Yuzu Key Lime Pie made with graham streusel, seasonal berries and topped with a raspberry sorbet and Brûlée Rice Pudding – Catalan Cream, mango sorbet and passion fruit.
I liked L’echon Brasserie a lot and will come back for sure.
