In the wake of his engagement to Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, Olivier Martinez has something else up his sleeve.

Martinez, a French import, has paired up with friend Michael Martin and restaurateur Jean-Phillippe Bernard to bring a certain je ne sais quoi to Miami next month. The trio have come together over countless trips between South Beach and the South of France to create Villa Azur, a product of the two beloved vacation destinations.

"I love the interesting and international people I have met in Miami. So when my friend Michael Martin said he found a space for a restaurant and lounge where we could bring in the best aspects from the South of France, I was excited and wanted to get involved," Martinez told People.

The menu will reportedly have dishes like penne pasta with vodka and caviar cream sauce; a veal filet mignon stuffed with artichokes, tomatoes, and cheese; and an extensive wine selection in La Cave d'Azur, their private dining room and wine cellar. Perhaps this is how Martinez wined and dined Halle Berry herself.
