Cavalli is a name that rarely requires context. The Italian fashion designer is known for his exotic prints, an eminent theme in his Miami restaurant concept, Cavalli Restaurant & Lounge in South Beach.
According to Miami.com, Cavalli Restaurant is temporarily closed for renovation purposes. A spokeswoman told the website, "We are only going to be doing a few cosmetic changes to revive the space." She says they should be open by late November / early December.
The already-highly embellished space serves International and traditional Italian cuisine; it received 2 stars from the Miami Herald a few months after opening.
