Located in the heart of the Miami Design District Le Jardinier puts a twist to french modern cuisine.

Le Jardinier is the french word for Gardner which is what the concept of the restaurant is.

Quality vegetables, seasonal ingredients, and fresh herbs.

Michelin-star chef Alain Verzeroli combined his culinary experience from Japan with his french culture to create Le Jardinier.

"Le Jardinier is vegetable-based but not vegetarian. We have a gluten-free based bread program.
And it was based on my experience in Japan and I noticed when I came to the U.S that quite often the vegetable was considered as a side dish or a side order. So I wanted to reverse this trend and put the vegetable in the center of the plate," states Chef Alain Verzeroli, Culinary Director of Le Jardinier.

Items on the menu include the Avocado Fondant with Eggplant, Roasted Beet Salad, and a personal favorite of mine, the Red Kabocha with Burrata and Honey Crisp Apples.

And if you’re hesitant to try any of the vegetable-focused dishes at Le Jardinier, chef Alain says don’t be.

"The way we are going to treat fruits and vegetables in this restaurant is pretty unique. So you will discover new flavors and a new way to introduce fruits and vegetables and how to combine them and how to combine harmony between all of them in a plate. Trust me, you will have a great experience here at Le Jardinier," says Verzeroli.

Le Jardiner is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday 5 pm - 10 pm and they just launched their lunch menu which you can enjoy from 12 pm - 3 pm.
