Located at The Village of Merrick Park, the 3,000 square-foot, 147-seat indoor/outdoor Parisian Style Bistro serves breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday; also, grab-and-go options, as well as a weekend breakfast and brunch.
Opened late November 2014 and already drawing acclaim and loyal fans by virtue of award-winning Chef/Restaurateur Pascal Oudin’s affordable, authentic and amazing casual French Faire.
We bake everything in house!! Natural, organic, no artificial flavoring, no additives.
“Brasserie Central is a concept I’ve wanted to execute for quite some time,” explains Oudin. “Here, we are true to the authentic Parisian brasserie, making everything from scratch daily, using classic French recipes and methods.”
Designed to offer the quick inexpensive bite, leisurely afternoon snack, or long celebratory meal, Oudin and Executive Chef Fabien Micard’s (formerly of Pascal’s on Ponce) bona fide French menu displays time-honored techniques and traditions, geared to please the palates of the many moods of life.
Using high-quality imported and local goods, Brasserie Central dishes out delights such as housemade sausages, paté and charcuterie; artisanal cheeses; full raw bar; traditional hors d’oeuvres, salads, sandwiches, and main plates; classic stove-to-table cocotte stews; and patisserie, or dessert; hand-crafted old world cocktails, a magnifique oyster happy hour, plat du jour, and special afternoon glacerie menu, featuring treats such as ice creams, crepes, waffles and coffees, round out the offerings.
Sporting a casual, rustic elegance, Brasserie Central is “old world meets new world” with exposed butcher block tables, bistro chairs, a 14-person communal table, large indoor/outdoor bar and Le Comptoir – the intimate oyster and raw bar. Along the walls, antiqued mirrors display the 24 regions of France while mammoth chalkboards don chef’s specials and cocktails. Modern lighting fixtures lead the eye down the long room, awash in woods, slates and hints of deep red, to an open kitchen and private dining room for 10.
Located under the bridge, across from Yard House, the restaurant also offers abundant outdoor seating to enjoy Miami’s sweet summer breezes and delightful winters.
