Housed on the ground floor below L’Atelier - in Miami's Design District’s Paradise Plaza, Le Jardinier is a vegetable-focused play on Robuchon’s creative French fare, created by his protege Alain Verzeroli. Expect approachable yet refined vegetable-driven cuisine - rooted in classic French technique, where local, seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh herbs and greens are complemented by wild and sustainable fish, meat, and poultry.
The space features black and white marble walls and floors and a vertical garden serving as a focal point on the back wall. A 17-seat black marble bar sits off to the side with circular accent lights behind the glass shelving, and an illuminated spiral staircase that leads up to the second-floor L’Atelier. There's also a rooftop garden where the restaurant harvests a variety of fresh herbs and seasonal ingredients, and a 64-seat outdoor patio surrounded decked out in lush greenery. Closed Mondays.
