A word from Bistro BE
Belgian cuisine is more than mussels, frites and waffles. It shares the sophistication and technique of classical French cuisine but some of the boldness you’d find in Germany. It’s very unique and will definitely be new to many customers. The visionary behind this fresh, new concept is owner Emmanuel Verschueren, a successful businessman, and Tim Michels, a prominent Belgian restaurateur. They are hoping to expose South Florida to the flavors and dishes of Belgium; thus, the idea for Bistro BE was born.

    I came here on a week day for lunch and it was fantastic to discover such a restaurant in my neighboorhood. It's not even open for a month but I'm sure this will be one of the trendy places in brickell. I tried the curry worst as an appetizer which was delicious, my partner took a steak tartare, great!! As a main course I had the mussels which were the best I had in Miami. As a desert I tried the chocolate fondue which I'm still dreaming about. I have to mention the beer list which is out of this world. Will be back, for sure!

    Very different and interesting menu choices. Loved the ginger / lemongrass infused mussels and the duck with the black cherry sauce was super tender and delicious! Extensive beer selection! Tricky to find if you go by GPS as it's in the middle of the building. Public inexpensive parking nearby.

    I ordered duck, it was okay but not worth waiting an hour for, my friend ordered salmon and it's dry. Staff is friendly but won't go there again

    Simply searched on the Internet for a different place to dine on our visit to Miami and selected Bistro BE. We had a great time, the waiters were fantastic, very helpful when ordering and attentive. The food was wonderful - the desserts divine. Only problem was my daughter went primarily for the rabbit stew but they had none when we reached.
