Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi, one of Italy’s most prestigious wine producers is spreading its wings to the U.S. as they are in the midst of opening their first restaurant on American soil inside the Astor Hotel on South Beach. The Frescobaldi family which has a long and storied history in Italy plans to please the palates of South Floridians with their award winning wines and authentic Italian cuisine. The Frescobaldi family brings South Floridians: dei Frescobaldi Miami Beach.
Piero Benini thought it was time to bring a Frescobaldi restaurant to the United States market and chose the Magic City as the first location. Choosing the Astor Hotel was easy as the restaurant sinks behind the lobby into a wide open space that boasts natural light and elegant décor, along with a cozy wine bar leading into a hidden outdoor terrace. Piero flew in award winning Chef Marco De Simone from Italy to create the menu. De Simone has been working diligently to create an amazing menu that will showcase authentic yet contemporary homemade recipes coupled with some Miami-esque touches for presentation.
The dei Frescobaldi restaurant plans to be one for those who appreciate authentic family recipes paired with an expansive selection of wines. The restaurant boasts almost their entire portfolio, with wines that have never been made available in the United States. They will be made available in the built in “market” as well as tableside. Piero and Alessio have set plans for wine dinners and wine tastings featuring selections from the Frescobaldi wine portfolio. Chef Marco carefully planned the menu around the wine portfolio which is sure to be a hit with any guest. The dei Frescobaldi wine cellar is a celebration of the family’s portfolio as it boasts an extensive wine list to fit every palate and occasion.
Dei Frescobaldi Miami Beach is located at 956 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33139 inside the Astor Hotel. Please find them on Face book: dei Frescobaldi Miami Beach.
