A Japandi-inspired concept has opened in Miami. Compliments of husband-and-wife culinary couple Cesar Olivo and Adriana Perez Benatar and partner Samuel Perez Benatar, Petite Comité is Miami’s new dining den, featuring an eclectic melange of Scandinavian, French and Asian cookery. As a family business, the trio of restaurateurs struck gold with successful concepts including Reunion Ktchn Bar and Blind Tiger in Aventura and Korner 67 in Miami Lakes. The recent opening of Petite Comité on Monday, March 20 signals an expansion of the 11 Ktchn Group brand. At this new indoor/outdoor spot at 2929 Biscayne Boulevard, the owners are applying the same approach that have made their previous concepts such hits – a cool, casual and comfortable yet polished setting; topflight service, deliciously-conceived and perfectly-executed fare.

“Japandi is a term used for design aesthetics but so much of that can be applied to cuisine. Tied up in it is a search for simplicity and contentment, an achievement of balance. We hope to provide an immersive experience in a space that feels casual, inviting and familiar. A menu that is a mix of creative interpretations, flavors from each culture meticulously selected to enjoy. Service that is effortless, yet polished” says Adriana Benatar in a statement. “The food, like the design, is artful but always delicious, each dish created to work in tandem with others, a mosaic of flavors that create an enticing and palate-pleasing whole.”

Surrounded by residences and businesses, the restaurant is serving lunch Monday-Friday. Sophisticated yet approachably-priced lunch dishes are available from Monday to Friday. Across various categories – Bites; Raw; Sushi Rolls; Veggie; Pasta Rice; Seafood and Meat – standout options include Octopus Sumūzu; Venison Carpaccio; Wagyu Sliders and Scallop Tartare with pickled cucumber, oyster aioli and crispy wontons. On Monday – Friday, from 3PM-7PM, House Oyster Happy Hour is available, featuring 50% off bubbly and sake drinks as well as $2 House Oysters.

Dinner menu items include Trio Crispy Rice; Jerusalem Artichoke Cream with celeriac root, apple and grated egg yolk; Swedish Calamari made with zucchini, lime, croutons, aioli, parmesan and oil; Pork Stroganoff in Boule Bread; Creamy Lobster Garganelli with Mascarpone and parmesan truffle and Wellington Tenderloin with wine sauce.

Brunch is served every Saturday and Sunday. It features popular lunch selections as well as savory and sweet brunch items including Gruyere Omelet and Nikkei Tenderloin with cherry tomatoes, onions and French fries.

The restaurant’s vibe combines equal parts comfort, coziness and wellbeing.

The 1,500 square-foot space offers ample indoor and outdoor seating on the picturesque terrace for a total of about 80 people. A very well known muralist in Wynwood and Miami – Gabriela Benatar – is responsible for the mural and design aesthetic outside the restaurant.
