Sure there’s queue boeuf (oxtail), barbecue ribs and fried chicken, but the main draw at Chef Creole is spiced up seafood – big time – you can’t miss the mural on the wall of the small fisherman reeling in a huge blue marlin.
Born in the Bahamas to Haitian parents, Ken and brother, the late Jude Pierre, opened their first Chef Creole restaurant on 77 St and NE 2nd Ave. 29 years ago this December. To date, he has established several locations, including the Miami International Airport that opened in August, 2018 and the Hard Rock Stadium concession in Miami Garden.
We blend Creole spices and add flavors of the Caribbean to create a taste that is mouth watering, which leads to great food good company good time.
Awesome experience! The food was delicious. The service was great and friendly. The owner came out to check in on us before heading to another location and was a joy to meet. Even short staffed they were able to answer questions on the menu and do a speil for us first time guests. Did I mention the food was delicious? Portions were generous and well priced too.
The fried griot meal is to die for! Had to take some of this delicious food with me to work since I didn’t finish it all at home. My family also took home the fried fish meal. I believe it was fried Snapper and let me tell you when I say it is cooked to perfection! Lord Jesus help me lol everything was excellent will be going back soon. Lemon Pepper wings and the banana soft drink was amazing. Can’t go wrong with Chef Creole.
Whenever I’m in town this place is a MUST!!!!! Always fresh, bursting with robust flavors just delicious. Last few times Mz. Nikki was our server & she is a total gem, sweet and on it… (getting the food out with a quickness, all the orders are always right). If your in the area or traveling afar to Miami like myself please stop by this place you won’t be disappointed….
Things to try: Fried Snapper, *Conch Fritters*, Steamed fish, Oxtails, Sweet plantains, Conch Salad, *EVERYTHING*
Incredible seafood! Haitian cuisine, with lots of options from Conch to shrimp to red snapper. Red snapper in sauce was a delight; it was a light gravy, and the snapper was cooked to perfection (note there were bones, but that was fine for me)! Best of all might have been their picante side that was better than most salsas I’ve had! Its called Pikliz, and it was such a treat! I never knew it was a thing, but now I wish I could go back for more.
First time having Hatian food, and as someone who food Jamaican food, let’s just say it was not a disappointment. They have a great covered patio area and music. Total Caribbean vibes. Miss Nicky was great and super attentive. We had the fried snapper and fried shrimp. The rice and peas and fried plantain we’re both great and seasoned well. The pickley Hatian hot sauce took everything to the next level. Excellent food and service. Can’t wait to come back.
