Behind The Fun Beaux Arts Look Of This Insta-Ready Brasserie

The Gramercy, a new American brasserie on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, is turning heads with its opulent Beaux Arts design. Grand columns, velvet-swathed banquettes, a mirrored elevator (to nowhere), a spiral staircase and neon-lit Heartbreak Hotel reception desk all serve as fabulous photo backdrops; it’s almost as if guests are checking into a grand hotel instead of a restaurant.“

We wanted to pay tribute to the great hospitality institutions of New York City while remaining true to what we are—a Coral Gables brasserie,” says designer Mark Lehmkuhl of Ghost House Creative Group. “The most comfortable place in the world is the lobby of an old-world hotel so we emulated that while balancing moments of old Florida, like the palm leaf canopy over the cheetah-upholstered dining room.”

Sip a Negroni and indulge in bistro favorites like a French dip and prime rib as piano music plays in the background.
