Le Jardinier review image

Le Jardinier

If the Star Trek Enterprise had an exclusive, upscale restaurant onboard, it’d look a lot like Le Jardinier. This fancy French spot in the Design District is so modern that it’s bordering on futuristic. The food is every bit as stylish, and you honestly might feel a little bad dipping your fork into the really pretty grilled tuna with eggplant, avocado, and chili oil, until you taste how good it is. This is one of the only places in Miami where you should actually ask to sit inside vs. outside because it’s not often you get to eat roasted lobster inside a restaurant from outer space.
