After 17 Years On Lincoln Road, Tiramesu Restaurant Moves Back To Its Origins
With Lincoln Roadâ€™s evolving landscape, the restaurant will soon re-open its doors South of Fifth
Miami, FL â€“ April 22, 2014 â€“ The ever-popular TiramesU, the landmark family-style restaurant on South Beachâ€™s Lincoln Road, having just celebrated its 25th-year anniversary, will temporarily close its doors on Sunday, April 27th, 2014.
After 17 years on bustling Lincoln Road, co-owner Graziano Sbroggio decided to move the restaurant to its origins, where it all began 25 years ago.
TiramesU will reopen its doors at the new location at 101 Washington Avenue after the summer. â€œSouth of Fifth is a growing dining destination and Iâ€™m very excited to be in the same neighborhood of many successful and internationally renowned restaurants,â€ says Graziano Sbroggio.
The new restaurant will continue its tradition, combining simplicity, consistency of food, service and accessibility which has proved to be a winning formula with both locals and tourists over the past 25 years. â€œThe new TiramesU will welcome its patrons with the same warm and friendly atmosphere, offering classic Italian cuisine with a modern twist,â€ adds Sbroggio.
27-year old Executive Chef Fabrizio Pintus is already working on a new menu, one that will not sacrifice the staples TiramesU is known and appreciated for, like the homemade pastas. He will take the summer to travel to different cities and expose himself to other cuisines and flavors. â€œI love exploring new recipes and the use of different ingredients with unexpected combinations. The idea is to experiment new dishes while remaining grounded in solid traditions. The new Tiramesu will offer inventive modern Italian flavors with simple yet refined plates that entice the palate and delight our patrons. Iâ€™d like for TiramesU to become your â€œhomeyâ€ kitchen away from home,â€ says Chef Fabrizio.
Valeria Longoni, General Manager, will become a co-owner in the new restaurant. Her dedication is invaluable and she is proud and honored to continue as an integral part of TiramesUâ€™s history in this challenging new project. â€œI firmly believe in the importance of working with a strong team of dedicated and professional people. Good food served with thoughtful care and consistent passion has been the key to our success,â€ adds Longoni.
The official last day of TiramesU on Lincoln Road will be Sunday, April 27th, 2014.
TiramesU opened its doors to customers in 1988 on the corner of Ocean Drive and 5th Avenue. It experienced early success and in 1997 was relocated to 721 Lincoln Road. It is owned and managed by Graspa Group, headed by Graziano Sbroggio, which includes Spris, Segafredo, Salumeria 104, Spris Artisan Pizza Downtown and Spris Artisan Pizza Midtown.
