It's like a taste of Paris in Brickell. The latest hot spot to open at this locale features traditional French fare including moule et frites, foie gras and toast and crispy duck confit. And, bien sur, the patrons who dine here are often heard speaking French which simply adds to the Parisian vibe.

In French, the word ‘Bouchon’ conjures up images of a quaint, French restaurant and that’s exactly what this Coconut Grove establishment is. It’s located in what some call the French quarter of South Florida. It offers up cuisine from the region around Lyon in the Southwest France including fresh steamed mussels and snails in garlic parsley sauce.
