MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Bonjour, France! National Hotel Executive Chef Pierre Sudre is bringing the flavors of his beloved hometown in the South of France to South Florida.

Undergoing a complete transformation, the hotel’s signature restaurant – Tamara’s Bistro – has introduced an entirely reimagined menu that features the traditional French recipes of a classic bistro.

Drawing upon culinary skills developed under the tutelage of such distinguished chefs as Michelin Star Chef Patrick Pages, Chef Sudre created a new menu that includes Provençal Tart, a thin puff pastry tart with onions marmalade, white anchovies, Kalamata olives and Herbes de Provence; Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame; Koulibiac de Saumon, a Salmon Wellington with spinach and rice, served with Crème Fraîche; and Risotto Paella.

The Tamara’s Bistro dessert menu has added Tarte Aux Pommes Grand Mère with vanilla ice cream; Profiteroles filled with vanilla ice cream choux, sauce chocolat, Chantilly and toasted almonds; and Poire belle Hélène.

“The inspiration behind the new menu concept is to give guests a taste of authentic French cuisine, from their first bite to their last,” said Chef Sudre. “We’re excited to share this experience with locals and international visitors alike.”

Many of these new menu items can be tasted by guests who take advantage of Miami Spice, which runs through September 30. As a participant, Tamara’s Bistro is offering a 3-course lunch menu for $23 and a 3-course dinner for $39. For the full Miami Spice menu, please visit

Inspired by the famous “Arts Decoratifs” painter Tamara de Lempicka, Tamara’s Bistro is known for its Art Deco mosaic artwork, capturing the elegance and grace of the Roaring Twenties in a chicly-styled restaurant and al fresco patio.

Tamara’s Bistro at the National Hotel Miami Beach is open daily from 7:00 am to 12:00 am. For more information or to make a reservation, please call 305-532-2311 or visit
