Semilla French American Bistro
The fourth in my series of chef owner/operated restaurants is the French American bistro Semilla Miami, one of my "go to" places since it opened. It's the passion of Frederic Joulin whose extensive pedigree includes helming the kitchen for French President Jacques Chirac and the three star Michelin Guy Savoy in Paris. Semilla Miami features the classics we've always loved in a "buzzy" contemporary bistro atmosphere that's fun, friendly, and welcoming, the kind of place you'll want to return and become a "regular" which is exactly what I've become, for ten years (even had a cocktail party here for my birthday). It had been awhile since I was here, so decided to return and check it out again for my series.
