New Miami Beach Brasserie: Au Pied de Cochon

Au Pied de Cochon, the new brasserie that recently opened in Miami Beach, is unveiling a slate of happy hours and bar & brunch menus.

A good way to transition from day to night can be found at Au Pied de Cochon’s beautiful bar area.  Settle into one of the red bar stools and enjoy the Parisian ambiance, along with relaxed prices at the daily Blue Hour, which runs Monday through Sunday from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

An on-point bar menu ($2.25 to $9.50) offers specially priced items from the raw bar including oysters, jumbo shrimp, mussels mariniere, foie gras with toast, rosette de Lyon (French saucisson) and Camembert cheese, among other light bites.
