Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

The periwinkles have packed their bags and gone back to the Riviera: After less than a year in operation, Maison d’Azur is out of business. The gorgeous seafood brasserie, set in the stunning Angler Resort on South Beach, served sensational seafood from the Mediterranean; their créme brûlée was finer than any in town. But it was très expensive. And executive chef Didier Balluais had left awhile back. And the hotel property is having problems of its own. And then the curse from which it could apparently not recover: A 2008 New Times nod for "Best Seafood Restaurant."

Au revoir.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
