“Graspa Groupâ€™s successful venue in the Design District: Maitardi, has been one of the most beloved destinations in the area for locals and visitors alike since November 2009. With the recent interest by several luxury brands and a planned large-scale expansion in the area, DACRA, property owner of the Maitardi location, elected to retake the location.â€œWe are very excited at the possibility of coming back to the Design District once construction is done and we are grateful to everyone who have helped make Maitardi what it is today,â€ states Graziano Sbroggio of Graspa Group. â€œMaitardi enabled us to work with new and exciting elements including the beautiful and bountiful space, the contemporary Italian menu, the events and, of course, the patrons.â€
Said Craig Robins Dacraâ€™s CEO, â€œWe are hopeful that one of my favorite cafes in the neighborhood Maitardi will return after our planned expansion. They are part of the soul of the neighborhood and Graziano is one of the best operators in Miami.â€
