Solitary Steak

The French just made your life simpler


Hitting multiple happy hours around Mary Brickell Village can make a man hungry. Really hungry.

And you're in no mood to make any decisions.

Leave that to the Francophiles inside the new L’Entrecôte de Paris, where steak frites is the only option on the menu

And with a tender nine-ounce cut doused in an insanely good 21-ingredient secret sauce served alongside crunchy shoestring fries, never before have you been so glad to do as you're told.

But you'll still have plenty of choices when it comes to the wine. We recommend a bottle of Russian River Valley pinot noir or, if you really want to impress the Brigitte Bardot look-alike you met back at happy hour, uncork a $340 bottle of Left Bank Bordeaux.

And with a scene modeled after the Café de Paris with banquet seating, mirrored walls, and a polished wooden bar, your grades in high school French will be our little secret.

Because some things should be that easy.
