Trained by the French masters Yann Rio brings to Miami his delectable style with just the best ingredients. Named "Maitre Restauranteur of France" in 2008, 2 Star Michelin and owner of 3 restaurants in France he blends traditional techniques with fine American and World flavors and the open minded spectrum of tastes Miami inspires.
Before relocating to Miami, Rio worked alongside France’s top chefs at Michelin-starred Parisian restaurants such as Hôtel de Crillon, Le Pré Catelan, later he went on to launch his own restaurants Le Sequoia, Naturella, and O Flore in Montpellier.
Rio’s first Miami venture was a labor of love named for a favorite Frank Sinatra song, Nothing But the Best. Located in the Brickell/Roads area, the romantic eatery received accolades from area foodies and critics. The innovative chef updated traditional French fare with lighter ingredients so Miami’s health-conscious diners would feel more inclined to feast on a favorite dish prepared with yogurt instead of butter and heavy cream. Rio’s passion for design inspired him to oversee every aspect of the restaurant’s interior from the rich lacquered furnishings to the art on the walls. Currently Chef Rio is a Restaurant Consultant and continues his journey and passion for culinary arts.
