Are all the food lovers ready? Here is some good news for you. The chef and owner of the acclaimed Osteria Francescana, Massimo Bottura, is bringing his Torno Subito concept to Miami very soon. The restaurant will open in the Arts District as part of a new development by Gables Capital Partners that also includes a hotel, residences, and public space.
The New Restaurant
The restaurant will be on the rooftop of a seven-story culinary and entertainment building, Julia and Henry. The team for this new restaurant will have members from Bottura’s Italian and Dubai teams. The chef has already confirmed that he wants to create a space for his customers that is full of light and space. Bottura also said that he wants to make sure that the menu is very different from what people have seen before.
Bernardo Paladini, Torno Subito’s current chef de cuisine in Dubai, is excited to move to Miami to oversee Massimo’s new restaurant. The chef stated that he feels blessed to move forward with his journey in a new place and is happy about the bright future and seeing the family grow. According to him, it will be great for him to work with Massimo again because of how clear Massimo is with his vision for the brand-new restaurant. He further added that he thinks it’s going to be a great opportunity for him and for all the other members of the team there at Torno Subito because they are going to be able to work with Bottura on some really good ideas that they have been thinking about for some time now. Also, it’s going to be fun for them to be back in the US where they already have their roots, added Bernardo Paladini.
The Other US Restaurants
We all know this won’t be Massimo’s first restaurant in the US and that Bottura is quite familiar with the American culinary world. His other rooftop restaurant, Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura in Beverly Hills, which he opened in 2020, offers a taste of both Los Angeles and Italian food culture. And even though it has a delicious menu with dishes like grilled artichokes with quail egg and almond cream, there are no details on what customers can expect at the Miami outlet. But in an interview, Bottura said he plans to use fresh ingredients from local farms and have an open kitchen that will allow diners to watch their food being made.
