South Beach Gets a Venetian-Inspired Wine Bar and Eatery

From a former Le Cirque chef

Venetian “Cicchetti” is the inspiration behind South Beach’s newest wine bar, Bàcaro. Quietly debuting at the end of 2016, it serves up a variety of wine and Italian style tapas right off Lincoln Road at 1625 Michigan Avenue.

Behind the cuisine is Venice-born chef Carlo Bernardini, the former corporate executive chef of Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts throughout Europe, and Le Cirque in New York City. On the menu expect shareable items like meatballs, mussels, clams, create-your-own meat and cheese boards, along with heartier dishes like bone-in rib eye, and traditional Italian pastas. Wine also plays a central roll at Bàcaro, with the restaurant serving up more than 120 different wines, including more than 20 by the glass.

The quaint, rustic-yet-modern space features walls adorned with wine racks, a granite bar, and a large communal table lined with cherry red windsor chairs. The restaurant is now open daily Monday to Wednesday from 11 a.m. until midnight, Friday and Saturday until 1 a.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Call 305-397-8248 for more info.
