Arthur ArnaizeLaMuse Cafe
While working in PR 20 years old, Parisian Arthur Arnaize met 2-star chef Thierry Schwartz in Alsace, igniting an unrealized culinary passion. Schwartz accepted Arthur into an artisanal baking and traditional French cooking internship which lasted two years. During this time, Arthur learned about creativity, discipline and organization to make perfect crusty breads, golden croissants, desserts and viennoiseries. In 2014, Arthur relocated to Miami to pursue his interest in art and food, fulfilling his dreams by opening L’Epicerie in Wynwood – his first restaurant – where the Miami New Times bestowed it’s “Best Baguette in Miami” award to him in 2016. Now chef at LaMuse Cafe at Avant Gallery, a contemporary art gallery located at the luxurious Epic Miami, Arthur channels the best of European sensibilities into a menu focused on exceptional salads, creative sandwiches, seafood plates and vegetarian delights. His project with gallerist and restauranteur, Dmitry Prut, merges art and cuisine in a way wholly unique to Miami – a lively cafe embedded inside an eclectic atmosphere that’s very Alice In Wonderland.
