The much-anticipated LaMuse Cafe, a whimsical new cafe fully integrated into the eastern wing of Avant Gallery at EPIC Miami, is now open at 270 Biscayne Boulevard Way. The restaurant, premium coffee bar and wine bar is open 7 days a week for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon service beginning at 7:30am until 5pm, while visually treating guests to a critically-acclaimed collection of artwork adorning the cavernous space located on Epic Miami’s ground floor facing Biscayne Boulevard Way. The restaurant features various dining options, including gallery dining, downtown delivery, catering, grab & go, and full space buyouts for art & food lovers to host incredibly unique events. Surrounded by skyscrapers housing Miami’s and the world’s most prestigious businesses, LaMuse Cafe is also the perfect spot for the “creative power lunch”, where fresh ideas flow amongst the art. Now in preview mode, LaMuse Cafe temporarily only offers 6 coveted tables available on a first-come, first-serve basis until the lush 34-seat terrace debuts later this Spring.
Culinarily, LaMuse Cafe’s Breakfast menu begins the day with a serious and seriously delicious coffee program as Miami’s first outpost featuring Brooklyn Roasting coffee – organic, fair trade and rainforest alliance beans that are rich, deep and chocolatey in flavor the cafe ships in directly from Brooklyn. LaMuse Cafe is now downtown Miami / Brickell Avenue’s new coffee mecca, featuring certified baristas who elevate coffee grinding, “dialing in”, cupping and presentation into art. Guests pair coffees with impossibly flaky croissants, housemade traditional French quiches, savory poached egg puff pastries, decadent breakfast sandwiches, and luxuriously-appointed tartines (including smoked salmon, cucumber, cream cheese, & dill; avocado, sea salt, honey & chia seeds; pear, goat cheese & tarragon; vegan cream cheese, watermelon radish, peas & sprouts; butternut squash, ricotta, honey & mint). Premium cold- pressed bottled juices by Expressed Juice and exotic teas by Tea Forté foster healthy lifestyles alongside breakfast bowls, including Acai & Fruits, Muesli & Berries, and Parfait & Granola.
LaMuse Cafe’s Lunch & Afternoon menu features a wide array of super-fresh, generous, ingredient-focused salads featuring premium vegetables like hydroponic butter lettuce, Campari tomatoes, English seedless cucumbers and exotic watermelon radishes. The salad menu includes a stunning Seafood Cobb, with shrimp, lump crabmeat, cage-free eggs and fresh avocado; an authentic Niçoise (don’t forget to pronounce the s like a z) with “dolphin safe” tuna, haricot verts, and roasted fingerling potatoes; a hearty Quinoa with hearts of palm, corn, chick peas, cucumbers and mint; and a bright Greek salad with fresh oregano, imported feta, and kalamata olives – a perfect salad to Add On beautiful proteins like sous vide lobster, colossal shrimp or Faroe Island salmon. Lunch also includes delicious Snacks like Dora’s Deviled Eggs (named after Picasso’s muse, Dora Maar) with Trout Roe or Caviar; Plates like the rustic Brigitte’s Burrata & Roasted Tomatoes (named after Brigitte Bardot), the beautiful Picasso’s Prosciutto & (raspberry drunk) Melon with walnuts (named after the Maestro himself, Pablo Picasso), the “Kamasutra” colossal shrimp cocktail, and the decadent Seafood Plate with lobster, Faroe Island salmon and colossal shrimp. LaMuse Cafe’s Lunch Sandwich section includes two wondrous combinations – Turkey, Apple, Brie & Mint, and Prosciutto, Burrata & Fig Jam.
Most interestingly, LaMuse Cafe is also the birthplace of The CroSubTM (an original concept designed by Prut), a combination of croissant breads and seriously tasty fillings – the Eggy CroSubTM is Miami’s best egg salad & avocado sandwich; the Tuna CroSubTM is an herbaceous blend of tarragon, dill and flat leaf parsley with cornichons; while the Cuban CroSubTM takes on Miami’s sandwich obsession with Austrian Canon cheese, thick barrel pickles, and imported garlic ham. LaMuse Cafe’s CroSubTM menu is a constantly evolving roster of deliciousness, so we invite our guests to check back often. In fact, The CroSub is making its worldwide food festival debut on Sunday, February 26th at South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s Bloody Mary Brunch at the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale. Hosted by Emmy Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris, LaMuse Cafe’s Eggy CroSub sandwich will be the star brunch sandwich from Noon – 2pm.
