Au Pied du Cochon - Miami

Haven't been, but saw the menu's up and what caught my eye was how expensive this place is for a bistro. Again, I haven't been so I can't comment on decor, service, etc., but when I hear bistro I think of a mid-range restaurant. Just like when you hear Cafe you don't think white tablecloths but when you hear Steakhouse you know it'll be rather expensive.

Did a quick comparison of the menu at APDC's Miami location vs. the one in Atlanta and the markups in MIA are absurd!

NY strip (w side) in ATL: $28 versus $41 in Miami

Bone-in Ribeye (w side) in ATL: $32 versus $46 in Miami.

I thought the prices were high begin with. When compared to another location they're almost astronomical! Is it because of the South Beach location? Is it because of the expected tourist draw?

Here's links to full menus for both.
