MIAMI, FL – October 1, 2014 – Tutto Il Giorno, the Hamptons-famous Italian dining celebrity hotspot, will add a fourth location to its roster of eateries with the opening of a new restaurant in Miami. Tutto Il Giorno’s first location outside of New York is slated to open at the Biscayne Beach condominium, a 51-story luxury residential tower currently under development at 711 NE 29th Street in Miami’s East Edgewater neighborhood. The brand’s current lineup of Tutto Il Giorno locations include eateries in Sag Harbor and Southampton in the Hamptons, and a newly-opened Tribeca location in New York City.
Executive Chef and Managing Partner Maurizio Marfoglia, industry veteran of Manhattan’s renowned Coco Pazzo, will wield his culinary expertise in adapting the Tutto taste to the Miami menu, continuing the tradition of excellence that has been the gastronomic foundation of the restaurants’ success.
Having studied under the inspiration of her mother Donna Karan, Gabby Karan De Felice, the creative director and designer of the Tutto Il Giorno brand, will apply her family’s design sensibility to the new Miami installment. As she has done with the restaurants’ Southampton, Sag Harbor and Tribeca locations, Gabby will be in charge of conceptualizing and executing the look and feel of the space in into an environment that’s chic, comfortable and intimate.
As one of the founding partners with her husband Gianpaolo De Felice, Gabby oversees every detail in the creative environment, balancing the architectural overview, furniture to the aesthetic feel throughout the brand. “My vision for our next venture is to bring the Hamptons and New York to Miami, creating a space and a place where family and friends will find their second home,” says Tutto Il Giorno Partner Gabby Karan De Felice.
Tutto Il Giorno’s Miami location will combine its signature style with more of a European-chic feel, with simple southern-inspired Mediterranean cuisine. “Tutto is known for creating an upscale yet relaxing setting with signature lounge and banquets areas, as well as intimate rooms for private dining,” says Tutto Il Giorno Partner Larry Baum. “The overall design palate of our South Florida location will have similar elements to our New York restaurants, but with its own Miami flair. The same goes for our menu selections, which will include dishes from the sea and the Caribbean.”
While an opening date for Tutto’s Miami location has not yet been set, construction of the Biscayne Beach tower is currently underway and is slated for completion in early 2016.
Boasting a prime waterfront location and designs by celebrity interior designer star Thom Filicia, the 399-unit Biscayne Beach tower will bring the beach to the Miami’s downtown urban core with a private members-only Beach Club overlooking Biscayne Bay. The development’s resort-style amenities will include two zero-entry pools, an outdoor bar and lounge area, and an elevated sandy beach with private cabanas – all set against the backdrop of sweeping bay views and a public bay walk providing access to the water – complete with bay-side piers for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and more. Preconstruction condos start in the $400,000 range to multi-million dollar penthouses.
Biscayne Beach is being developed by a joint venture between Eastview Development, a South Florida-based real estate development firm with residential projects across the country; and GTIS Partners, a global real estate investment firm headquartered in New York with more than $2.3 billion in assets throughout the U.S. and Brazil.
