Louie Bossi Aims to Redefine Italian Cuisine in South Florida

South Florida chef Louie Bossi will tell you that everything he makes is from scratch. His first memory of cooking: dabbling in the family's kitchen at the gas stove, heating corn kernels over an open flame.

That do-it-yourself mentality is what has helped propel the Big Time Restaurant executive chef into his own establishment, where handmade, homemade, and traditional are the key ingredients. And that's exactly what you can expect from his Italian restaurant, the eponymous Louie Bossi's Ristorante, Bar & Pizzeria set to open later this year in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
