Bistro BE Coming to Miami: Belgian Waffles, Chocolate, and Beer Galore

Miami's international cuisine scene is getting a European flair with Bistro BE, scheduled to open at 1111 SW First Ave. in downtown Miami this summer.

The restaurant, by Emmanuel Verschueren, a businessman who made his career in plastics (cue The Graduate jokes), as well as restaurants in Europe, features cuisine executed by chef Frederik Appelt, an acclaimed chef in Belgium. Together, they hope to bring authentic Belgian cuisine to Miami.
