Dining Out: Paul

This week I am in Miami, FL visiting my parents and little sister. To save some cash on my ticket I flew into Fort Lauderdale (35 minutes north) and after picking me up, my family drove to the Aventura Mall. For those that live in Boston, imagine the Natick Mall times two. This place is enormous! After a few hours shopping the post-Christmas sales, we collapsed into chairs at Paul's for lunch.

Paul's is inside the Aventura Mall as both a kiosk and a full restaurant. We sat at the larger location at a small table right out front. We had an excellent spot for people watching.

Paul's is a French restaurant that offers all the French classics, including fresh bread, pastries and other delicious goodies.

You place your order at the counter and they provide you with a number to place on your table. The wait staff delivers your food right to the table. I love the French country design on the number signs. So cute!

I ordered the tomato mozzarella sandwich on a baguette. Boy was that bread incredible!

My parents both ordered the Black Forest ham sandwich which came with cheese, tomato and arugula.

We ordered a side of what they called "potato wedges" to split which were disappointing. Though they were baked instead of fried (always a plus) they weren't quite crispy enough and needed both salt and pepper to have any kind of flavor.

Paul's is a nice alternative to the usual mall options like the Cheesecake Factory, PF Changs or heaven forbid, the food court. I shudder at the thought.

Miami natives - if you don't want to drive all the way to Aventura, Paul's also has a location at 450 Lincoln Road.
