The Italian concept occupies the former Pubbelly Noodle Bar space in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbour neighborhood. Mendín's first Italian restaurant is a collaboration with his longtime business partner Sergio Navarro and former Lucali chef Santo Agnello - and pays homage to Brooklyn-born Agnello's Sicilian origins.
Dine on rustic Italian dishes such as prosciutto served with parmesan butter and caponata honey on Brooklyn-style bread and branzino famili pazza, served with mussels, white wine, parsley and tomato. The bijou indoor and outdoor space is decked in a Mediterranean-inspired décor of white and blues.
Open Tuesday to Sunday, from 5pm.
A taste of Italy, Sunday brunch
Branzino acqua pazza served with littleneck clams, white wine, parsley, and tomato; raviolini ai funghi made with wild mushrooms and the eight-hour Sunday sauce with short-rib meatballs, pork rib, and Italian sausage.
