There’s a new Italian restaurant in town and it’s poised to take over the dining scene with a modern interpretation of Italian cuisine. Owned and operated by Grove Bay Hospitality Group’s seasoned restaurateurs, Mi’talia Kitchen & Bar is helmed by James Beard semi-finalists, Top Chef veterans and husband-wife culinary powerhouses Chefs Janine Booth & Jeff McInnis. Standout dishes include Not Your Nonna’s Bolognese with ricotta gnudi; Tuscan Brick Chicken with hazelnut romesco served with an herb & pomegranate salad; Truffle-Crusted Filet Mignon with king trumpet mushrooms and marsala wine jus; and the uniquely-shaped Sunflower Pizza with sun-gold tomatoes, yellow squash, mint & pistachio pesto, sunflower seeds and whipped ricotta. The drinks are equally impressive, several of which feature their house-made limoncellos. “From Italy’s northern comfort food to its southern seaside cuisine, the beautiful sun-filled country is a huge source for culinary inspiration,” say the chefs. “We’re so excited to cook from our memories and bring our version of these flavors to Miami!”; MitaliaKitchen.com.
