The former Di Mare Vero Beach is now Chez Frenchie’s Steak and Seafood, under the same ownership, but with more traditional French dishes added to its menu.
Chef Jean Zana has owned and operated Di Mare Vero Beach for about 12 years, previously offering Italian cuisine in a South Beach neighborhood setting.
Now, he wants diners to have a fine dining experience in French cuisine. Chez Frenchie’s Steak and Seafood serves homemade bread, fresh seafood bought daily and Creekstone Farm steaks imported from Kansas.
