Miami has a new Michelin-caliber restaurant with the debut of Fiola (1500 San Ignacio Avenue) which is the second location for the one Michelin-starred restaurant from Washington, D.C. by restaurateurs, Fabio and Maria Trabocchi and their first restaurant outside of D.C.
“Our family has vacationed in South Florida for years, and we’ve been fortunate to watch it grow into one of the world’s most exciting culinary and cultural destinations,” said Fabio Trabocchi. “Maria and I are delighted to open Fiola in a place with which we feel a strong connection and look forward to becoming part of the vibrant community.”
The elegant Italian eatery — which boasts the Obamas as fans — features plenty of the classic dishes that can be found on the D.C. menu like lobster ravioli, bucatini with red prawns and sea urchin, prosciutto wrapped veal chops, as well as a health-conscious three-course, prix-fixe, Mediterranean spread during lunch and a jazz brunch on Sundays. As for the bar, it features craft cocktails, a 8,000 bottle wine cellar, as well as a selection of cigars.
The 5,800-square-foot restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating with an old-world meets new-world style designed by award-winning Jeffrey Beers International, in collaboration with Barcelona-based Lazaro Rosa-Violan. And come spring of 2019, Fiola Miami will also unveil the area’s first rooftop space.
