In a space that screams South Beach swank, this upscale spot is heavy on the lounge factor, with special attention paid to diners whose ideal night is eating in bed. While there's a choice of seats indoors or on the terrace, one section of the house is geared toward those looking for romance. Sumptuous canopy beds decked out in white with dim lighting set the mood, enhanced by dishes delivered on wooden bed trays. Those who are more enchanted by upright dining can opt for a tableside show from the flambé cart (the crêpe Suzette is best delivered in this fashion). The atmosphere is trendy, and that includes the food—French fusion dishes beautifully displayed like works of art. Chef Erwin Hüsken is known for his creativity in the kitchen, adding twists to his French-inspired dishes, like the crème brûlée of Hungarian duck liver. If you're open to surprises, give the chef carte blanche and order the three-course menu, which changes daily.
