After purchasing the former Versace Mansion for $41.5 million, the Nakash family, who owns Jordache Enterprises, brought in restaurateur Barton G. Weiss and his team to run the show at The Villa by Barton G's new restaurant, Il Sole. Apparently, the kitchen will be helmed by executive chef Scott Linquist and executive pastry chef Luis Vasquez, a pair who will focus on a Mediterranean-inspired menu. Weiss says in a press release, "We are certain that under the innovative and expert culinary guidance of Chefs Linquist and Vasquez, and the pleasure of working with the Nakash Family, "Il Sole" will define itself as an exciting new entry into the arena of South Florida dining."
