Best New Restaurant Miami 2007 - David Bouley Evolution

A great number of great restaurants debuted this past year, but we're talking about flippin' David Bouley here, one of the three or four most talented chefs working in America today. Evolution, his first foray outside of New York, instantly magnifies South Florida's blip on the national culinary radar. It's also a great place to have dinner (it's not open for lunch), starting with raisin-and-apple rolls, salt-sprinkled brioche, and other Old World breads baked on premises. An herb broth brimming with pristine shellfish; Long Island duckling breast laced with honey, butter, and fresh lavender flowers; and scallop-crusted black sea bass in an intensely flavored bouillabaisse foam constitute another three mouth-watering reasons why Evolution is more evolved than its high-priced haute competition. (How expensiveç If you have to ask, you probably can't afford to eat here.) Then there are the cheeses by Terrance Brennan Artisanal Connoisseurs, the nearly infinite wine list, smoothly professional service, and a stylish Art Deco decor. Need further convincingç A complimentary intermezzo of electrically fresh strawberry soup with fromage blanc sorbet is so brilliant it will make you cry.

Attempted to eat there with prospective clients and the evening was a complete disaster. We waited for 40 minutes and they never bothered to greet us or take a drink order. This place has adopted typical Miami service standards. Welcome to town!

It's possible that some detractors have no perspective on good food. I am a professional chef of 35 years and thought it was blissful. The sushi was as good as it gets, maybe Miami is not ready for NYC.

Great pick! Evolution was the best restaurant I've gone to all year. Though pricey, money is well spent on fresh/deliciously prepared food, elegant atmosphere, and attentive service. Their Hemingway Special drink uses a 23 year old rum that is a must try.
