Les Halles - Closed

2415 Ponce de Leon Blvd. Coral Gables, FL 33134 | Coral Gables/South Miami | 305-461-1099

Location Description:

As distinctly French as hundreds of varieties of gloriously stinky cheese and smoke-belching Peugeots, this cozy, comfortable brasserie not only looks the part but also delivers all the French culinary classics many of its less Gallic competitors dare not offer. Unfortunately not all are that successful, like the house signature steak frites, with tough, chewy meat and only passable fries. Much better are appetizers like a half portion of plump, succulent mussels in a white wine/shallot/garlic broth; vinegary potato/olive salad topped with creamy goat cheese; and savory profiteroles that will make you sing, "Oui, oui!"
