Otentic Fresh Food Restaurant

710 Washington Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-531-1464

Location Description:

This clean, bright, 18-seat bistro looks out of place on this fast-food stretch of Washington Avenue. Almost everything at Otentic is slow: the cooking of food, the movement of workers, seemingly time itself. Yet after you finish off a small flute of complimentary Sauternes, and spread soft butter upon wedges of baguette, you're likely to feel blissfully ensconced within the space. Custardy quiche is an absolute beginner, as is the specialty of the house: crêpes. There are five savory fillings from which to choose; try the chicken rendition, tenderly seared nuggets in a Parmesan-flecked cream sauce. Tarragon-perfumed chicken and a thin, flavorful farmers steak are best bets as entrées. The Nutella crêpe makes a divine dessert. Value here is noteworthy: Starters are $7 or $8, entrées $10 to $15 (for filet mignon). Crêpes are $7, sweet crêpes $5.50. Try to catch this gem when you're on South Beach.
