Jan. 28—Miami chill by day, SoHo electricity by night.
Which is the ambiance you will find at the new Osteria Morini in Miami Beach.
Altamarea Team, the New-York primarily based team at the rear of the new restaurant, is famous for its Michelin-star rated Marea and Ai Fiori in addition to the Osteria Morini brand. The 3,700-sq.-foot Miami Seashore spot, within the Kimpton Palomar South Beach front, joins sister places to eat in New York Metropolis, Prolonged Island, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.
The dining place seats 100, with bar seating for 15 and al fresco dining on the patio seats 45 along the Collins Canal. You will find also a non-public dining option with seating for 20.
Company Government Chef Bill Dorrler, who has released all Morini restaurants, and Chef de Cuisine Julio Cesar Ramos will oversee the menu, which highlights Northern Italian delicacies. Start off with plates to share, like Battilardo (cured sliced meats, cheeses and spreads), the signature Mare Seafood salad or Polpettine with prosciutto and mortadella meatballs.
Entrees include these kinds of signature pastas as cappelletti (truffled ricotta ravioli with prosciutto) and tagliatelle (bolognese ragu, parmigiano) and grilled meats and seafood.
“We are bringing lots of of Morini’s reliable favorites to Miami, and we’re enthusiastic to adapt part of our menu to align with the nearby vibe and Miami way of life with some new, lighter choices as very well,” reported Dorrler in a press release. “This is my fifth Morini opening, and Chef Ramos and I are notably wanting forward to incorporating Miami flavors and products — feel locally caught seafood and the freshest Florida make — creating the perfect stability of delicacies and cocktails.”
Talking of cocktails: The wine list celebrates sustainable wine from tiny, family-operated vineyards, whilst Beverage Manager Shanna Beattie reveals off signature beverages like Morini’s Negroni, built of Bombay Dry Gin, Campari and Cinzano 1757, and the Negroni Bianco, a white variation with Junipero gin, Gran Classico Bitters and Cocchi Americano.
This is South Beach front, though, so you may find Miami-impressed cocktails on the menu, way too: the Passione Arrabbiata (Espolon Blanco, Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, enthusiasm fruit, lime, chili) and Outdated Cuban (Appleton Rum, Ca’ Del Bosco Francicorta, mint and bitters).
