FELICE, a popular Tuscan dining destination that started in New York City, has recently announced its plans to open a new flagship restaurant, FELICE Brickell, in Miami’s bustling Brickell neighborhood. The new restaurant at 1450 Brickell Ave. is expected to open in the spring of 2024 and will offer visitors a taste of Tuscan-inspired cuisine and a unique design.
“The energy of Miami has inspired us, and we are delighted to become a part of its thriving culinary scene,” Jacopo Giustiniani says, partner at SA Hospitality Group. “FELICE Brickell transcends the conventional restaurant experience; it’s a gastronomic voyage to Tuscany. Our culinary offerings, drawing inspiration from the Tuscan tradition, using the freshest seasonal ingredients, promises to transport our guests directly to the heart of Italy.”
FELICE Brickell offers authentic Tuscan cuisine for lunch and dinner. Executive Chefs Roberto Consiglio and Luigi Bailon feature signature dishes such as spaghetti felicetti alla diavola and the famous short ribs peposo, leading the menu. FELICE Brickell distinguishes itself from other restaurants in the FELICE family by offering a table-side dining experience that adds a touch of personalized service to its already exceptional offerings.
FELICE is known for its extensive, Italian-driven wine list, mainly emphasizing Tuscan wines such as Chiantis, Brunellos, and Sangiovese. The menu also includes a curated selection of organic and natural wines. The wine list is carefully chosen, featuring well-known classics and hidden gems from various regions throughout Italy. The aim is to complement the flavors of the dishes and enhance the overall dining experience.
FELICE Brickell will invite guests to embark on a culinary journey that will commence in the bar and lounge area. The Felice Bar and Lounge program has been established to create classic cocktails with precision and excellence and provide a sophisticated setting for connoisseurs and casual patrons.
The restaurant’s spacious patio welcomes Miami’s tropical climate, beckoning guests to enjoy a delightful outdoor dining experience. With 20 thoughtfully arranged tables, the patio offers an inviting escape for intimate dinners or larger gatherings, providing a picturesque setting to relish Tuscan cuisine.
