It's 9 p.m. and it's raining in sheets outside Mignonette, a new oyster bar and seafood eatery off NE Second Avenue across from the City of Miami Cemetery. Gentlemen pull their cars onto the sidewalk to let their ladies scurry in (relatively) dry. But there's nevertheless a wait to be seated at this latest venture from Blue Collar owner and executive chef Daniel Serfer and the man behind the food blog Miami Restaurant Power Rankings, Ryan Roman.
Diners yet to be assigned tables stare longingly at the massive marquee behind the raw bar indicating the day's oyster offerings. West Coast options are displayed on the left, East Coast ones on the right.
