Picture this, you enter Tamara's Bistro, which is inside of the National Hotel and you are immediately greeted by the sun that is setting over Miami Beach just a outside the window. You are given the choice to either sit outside by the infinity pool, or inside in air conditioning (I might choose the later for a couple more months).
As you make your way to your table you are greeted by the welcoming scent of food being served just a few tables away. Now, let’s take a look at the menu, shall we? The items that pop out are the salmon tartare and provençal tart. The tart is a perfectly thin puff pastry that is served with onions marmalade, white anchiovies, kalamata olives, and herbs. So light and fluffy you’ll want to eat the whole plate.
Now, my favorite dish on the menu has to be the croque madame. I may be slightly biased because I went to France a couple of years ago, and focused my efforts on eating as many as I could. I have to tell you, Chef Pierre Sudre really knows what he is doing. He was raised in France!
When it comes to dessert you would be completely out of your mind if you didn't order the profiteroles. This beautiful plate comes filled with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, Chantilly and toasted almonds. You may want to order two!
