David Manero to Open Vic &Angelo's SoBe
The restaurant empire of David Manero just keeps on growing.
The owner of Vic & Angelo's, DeVito South Beach, The Office and BurgerFi is already gearing up for a July debut of his second BurgerFi in Delray Beach, with rumors of a third upscale burger joint for CityPlace swirling in the wind.
Now comes word that a third Vic & Angelo's is in the works, this one channeling "Modern Mediterranean Glam" in the very heart of South Florida Glam and Blingville, Ocean Drive in South Beach.
The new V&A's is slated to go live in July with corporate top
toque Paul Griffin at heading up the kitchen. Among the culinary
highlights: SoBe's first coal-fired pizza oven, a rosters of pastas made
in-house daily, platters of artisan salumi and cheeses, a selection of
caviars and really, really big Colossal Jumbo Shrimp.
Mediterranean Glam design is by Manero's wife, Lynn, who's doing a
"palazzo-style" interior complete with reclaimed brick walls, mahogany
floor, marble tables, Venetian chandeliers and a smattering of
flat-screen TVs. But wait, there's more. Like twin outdoor patios with
built-in firepits and lounge seating, first and second-floor bars,
private cabanas and second-floor lounge, a DJ station and balcony
overlooking Ocean Drive.
That's really quite enough, don't you think?
