The Fantastic 1940s: Art Deco Pied à Terre Opens in Miami

Get a dose of Art Deco chic with the newly opened Pied à Terre on James Avenue inside the Cadet Hotel in Miami Beach.

Touting only eight tables, exclusive is the decided word du jour - in fact, you simply must make a reservation to get a seat.

The word on the street is that there is a lovely outdoor patio with a white-curtained chef's table - but due to construction, the rumble and tumble may be too distracting to dine alfresco right now.

We've heard that the 6-course chef's tasting menu is decided must, where everything from Local Wahoo Tiradito and Crispy Veal Shortbreads are served up doused in truffles and caviar.
