Miami’s latest round of restaurant openings includes a slew of new eateries, from the first U.S. locations for two European brands and a popular French pâtisserie to the third restaurant for fast-casual dim sum joint Yip and pan-Latin fusion newcomer Ecléctico.
Les Moulins La Fayette
19575 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura
lesmoulinslafayette.comThis French bakery, which first gained popularity in Canada, recently opened its second South Florida location at Aventura Mall. The concept is the work of founder Johnny Jeulin — a fifth-generation baker, pastry chef, and chocolatier who started his first business at the age of 20 in La Loupe, France. Today, his bakery brand offers a wide assortment of pastries and sweet eats ranging from petite desserts and chocolates to croissants made with French cultured butter and fresh-baked, artisanal breads. The real treat: the house-made viennoiserie, a traditional French cake- or cookie-like pastry. Those looking for a quick lunch or meal can also choose from a number of ready-to-eat sandwiches, quiches, and more. Open from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

Established by the Gold Marquess family from Pembroke Pines, Yip is all about making Chinese food accessible to South Floridians, offering authentic recipes like steamed har gao and xiao long bao (soup) dumplings to softshell crab bao buns — even boba milk teas. With additional locations at Doral Yard and 1-800-Lucky, Yip is making it that much easier to find good Chinese on the go. Open from noon to 9 p.m. daily.
