Colette Little French Bistro opened over two weeks ago on Lincoln Road. Featuring woven chairs and a Parisian-inspired decor, its outdoor terrace feels more Champs-Élysées than South Beach.

Chef Frederick Bouldron, who worked in several Michelin-rated restaurants in France, previously served as chef de cuisine at Miami's Tosca and Villa Mayfair. Now he runs the kitchen at Colette, where he offers simple, classic, and well-priced French fare. We were recently invited to sample his dishes. What follows is a preview of the bistro's menu.

At Colette, Bouldron removes from escargots ($12) from their shells and drowns them in a decadent butter-parsley sauce. Never tried 'em before? Now's as good a time as any.

French onion soup is served sizzling and oozing cheesy goodness. It's perfect for the upcoming winter season.

Colette offers several tartars, including salmon, steak, and tuna varieties. We ordered the tuna ($14). "The tuna is sliced differently here, and it's mixed with mango and a bit of spice," explains owner Francis Pittilloni. Shallots, chives, cucumbers, and fried onions top it off.
