Marion is a culmination of everything you find charming and rustic in a European market/brasserie. It’s a Mediterranean focused restaurant, market, bar, grand cafe, and overall beautiful space. Certainly, no details were left behind on creating the aesthetic of the restaurant. The same commitment can be seen at its sister venues; El Tucan and Baoli.
After grabbing drinks in Brickell, my friend and I wanted to finally try Marion. We were in the mood for a quality cheese board, some scrumptious bites and of course dessert! 🙂
Firstly, we ordered glasses of Perrier Jouet and decided to get a few slices of their artisanal cheeses. The waiter then came around with an abundant cheese cart, explained the different flavor profiles and helped us determine what selection we wanted. The cheeses were great alongside a medley of dried fruits and pain au noix (nut bread). I only wish they had reminded us of each type when they served us the cheese board. My favorites were the Camembert & San Simon cheeses.
The tarte du jour was very nice, with plenty of fruits, a creamy custard center. We also ordered the “Twenty Five Tomatoes” which of course has tomatoes of different varieties, local burrata and a tomato vinaigrette. I didn’t get a picture of this dish but it was good, the burrata was very soft and fresh. It’s a simple appetizer.
