Miel Brasserie Provencale
Early in the morning, you may not want to sip your OJ alongside the tattooed hordes at a retro diner. You could do without flapjacks. Instead you want luxury, good coffee served in good china, waiters who call you “madam” or “sir” (not “dude”), and real croissants — in fact, make that French luxury. Morning at Miel is a sumptuous taste of those bygone days when travel did not involve the word “budget.” And when it’s warm out, joy of indulgent joys, they’ll call you “madam” or “sir” on the patio in the morning sun.
