Epicure Gourmet Market & Cafe

1656 Alton Road, Ste 300 Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-672-1861

Location Description:

Miami's premier upscale foodie emporium displays an impressive array of reasonably priced, decently flavorful meals to go, freshly made or frozen. Skip the frozen ones, which resemble the TV dinners of the bad old days. Instead, try the excellent New England-style clam chowder, hearty pasta e fagioli, well-made lasagna, or tasty chicken potpie; any one of these with a salad and hunk of French bread would make a fine dinner. A quite creditable bread pudding would make an equally fine dessert.
