Hg2 : The Hedonist

A la Folie

The sight of the French chef at A la Folie wearing a handkerchief over his head may seem a little strange at first. Don’t let be deterred. He produces some of the finest stuffed crêpes as well as croques monsieurs and madames at this little cafe/restaurant in Miami.

A la Folie is ideal for lunch or an afternoon snack, and attracts a regular group of locals, who like to revel in a slice of French culture. The décor has a revolutionary theme emboldened with French graffiti, while the tables outside overlook wall paintings of Fidel Castro and Havana.

But you will soon forget about Fidel when you meet the owner, who just loves to talk about Paris. The cups of coffee served in enormous soup bowls come as even more of a surprise than the chef’s attire, but if you don’t fancy coffee, the outdoor lounge area provides an intimate setting for an early evening drink.
