To soften the look slip on the delicate Geneva natural cover-up a lace-lover s dream You ll want to wear your fave vintage bathing suit for the Mod Saturdays pool party at North Beach Village Resort on Fort Lauderdale Beach. This free throwback party goes down on the third Saturday of each month you can sunbathe and sip cocktails poolside while listening to chill mixes by local DJs. It s your chance to be a pin-up beach bunny. I ve covered the restaurant scene in South Florida for 10 years and I ve seen it implode and explode in every direction. I ve watched celebrity chefs come and go eaten more truffles short ribs and bone marrow than I care to remember and have left hungry and broke from small plate restaurants. At a time of mass restaurant closings in South Florida it may seem like a risky time to publish a Restaurant Issue. But we quickly found that there are also standout chefs in Broward and Palm Beach counties who clearly have the Midas touch. In this issue we highlight three top chef owners Angelo Elia Andrew Balick and Peter Boulukos that are quickly taking over South Florida. We ll show you what big ideas they have in store for diners where they re expanding next and the mindboggling dedication it takes to do their jobs. Miami Spice also kicks off this month and it s worth the drive to snag deals at some of the area s top restaurants. Contributing writer Becky Randel breaks down where you can get the most for your money plus the new restaurants that should be on your radar. The new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is growing by the day and I can barely contain my excitement about the global impact it will have on South Florida. The old museum closes at the end of this month and the extravagant new campus will open September 2016 for a vibrant new beginning. With a huge suspended shark tank and an out-of-this-world planetarium we ll show you that no matter where you live you ll want to be a part of this spectacular space. As always thank you for reading. I hope to see you dining out this month South Florida s FIRST Caudalie store is now open at Aventura Mall. I became obsessed with these all-natural grapeinfused products after a trip to the brand s New York location last year. My must-have product is the Premier Cru Elixir a rich oil and serum that gives me a radiant glow and keeps my face super-hydrated. The new store also has a treatment room and the customized facials are insane I m in love with pastry chef Norman Love s custom chocolates they are works of art. They are almost too pretty to eat (almost). My mustorder is the S more Love a small box of four bite-sized gooey caramel s mores. The best part You never have to light a fire or make a mess.

Cover shoot location Eco Simplista in Fort Lauderdale Table styled by Christofle s Art of The Table National Brand Ambassador Justin Trabert I LMGFL.COM AUGUST 2015 53 54 AUGUST 2015 LMGFL.COM Tap Takeover Sit down with Andrew Balick for a few minutes and you ll immediately understand why the young-gun executive chef is a front-runner in the restaurant scene. After a successful three years heading up Tapco Restaurant Group s flagship eatery Tap 42 Fort Lauderdale the 33-year-old recently helped open another Tap 42 in Boca Raton and will introduce a third location in Coral Gables by the end of the year. Balick and the restaurant group will also debut a fresh new concept in Fort Lauderdale called Bar Rita this fall. With three openings underway this year the Tapco team seems to have the Midas touch when it comes to flourishing in an ever-shaky restaurant world. We know that there s a lot of risk in doing it Balick admits. If you take your finger off the pulse for one second you might lose control. Thankfully for us I know we re the type of operators that will never take our fingers off the pulse because we never rest. For Balick it s about knowing what works and what doesn t and for his team expansion means consistency. Tap 42 Boca isn t different from our Fort Lauderdale location except for the building itself Balick points out. The menu is 95 percent the same with maybe one or two things different. The Boca location and the forthcoming Coral Gables location will also display the restaurant s iconic stretched-out bar. The young chef also points out that these days remaining at the top of the food chain also means staying on top of social media. With foodie photos trending more than ever Balick admits he s always watching. We re really looking at what other people post. We know what every single plate is supposed to look like. Does the sauce look perfect Do the grill marks look perfect on the wings In between monitoring social media and two Tap 42 grand openings Balick is hard at work on what is perhaps the most anticipated restaurant reveal of the year Bar Rita. Coming in hot as downtown Fort Lauderdale s first rooftop bar Bar Rita will offer a modern Tap twist on Mexican cuisine. Balick says traditional dishes like tacos and quesadillas will be infused with flavors from other worldly cuisines and that there will also be a Mexicanthemed brunch (much like Tap s uber-popular brunch) to ensure a genuine Tapco experience. A massive staircase will allow guests to float up and down the two-level restaurant. An elevator will also be available for stiletto-wearing se oritas or those who may indulge in few too many cervezas. What I imagine is a really bustling happy hour with people sitting on the rooftop having guacamole and sharing a margarita Balick says. It s ultimately going to be a party. 5 Questions with Chef Balick If you weren t a chef what would you be I would love to own and operate a high-end gym that would have an onsite nutritionist and trainers that work one-on-one with individuals to help them achieve their fitness goals. Who cooks at home There isn t much cooking going on at home although I make my own beef jerky regularly. In what city would you want to eat during your last weekend on Earth Tokyo Japan because I would want my final meals to be some of the best sushi in the world and it s a city I ve always wanted to visit. Where do you eat on your days off Sushi is usually my first thought. What did you have for dinner last night There is a bar in Hollywood Rickey s my dad used to take me to as a kid. They serve a twin Maine lobster dinner a few nights out of the week as a special and it s still as good as it was when I was 10 years old. LMGFL.COM AUGUST 2015 55 56 AUGUST 2015 LMGFL.COM Empire State of Mind If you were asked to rattle off some of Fort Lauderdale s most popular restaurants old and new I bet you would name at least one that Executive Chef Peter Boulukos co-owns and operates. From downtown to the beach Boulukos and partner Tim Petrillo have steadily built a solid empire of restaurants and nightclubs that includes Tarpon Bend YOLO and O Lounge Vibe Fork & Balls and S3. And their empire is still growing. Boulukos and his team will soon reimagine Bimini Boatyard Bar & Grill on 17th Street changing everything from the decor to the food adding a more yachty-chic upscale vibe. We are undergoing a complete redesign inside and out Boulukos says. We ll be adding a modern sophisticated lounge setting in addition to bars throughout and completely revamped seating areas with an open layout that will transition seamlessly from room to room indoors to out. We plan to focus heavily on the outdoor space creating an intimate casual garden patio setting with lounge areas lush landscaping an outdoor bar and fire pits. The Greek chef who loves hooking and cooking fish goes on to say that the menu will be seafood-centric but with fewer fried dishes. I try to keep it simple and let the integrity of each product speak for itself he says. We are going to have a big emphasis on shellfish. We are trying to develop a shellfish bar cart area that will also do fresh ceviche tableside. The day we interviewed Boulukos he was getting ready to take a quick family trip to Florida s west coast a rare opportunity when you re juggling so many restaurants. The dedication that you have to have to be successful is tremendous he says. My partner and I don t know any better. If we only work eight hours then that s like a half-day. Boulukos typically works at least a 12-hour shift every day as executive chef at YOLO on Las Olas. If you think it s hard Keeping Up with the Kardashians try keeping up with five totally different restaurant concepts. Like children they are all equally as important. Some are more trouble than others Boulukos jokes. He and Petrillo visit all of their locations monthly to experience everything as guests their restaurant managers do it weekly. Even as they work to reinvent Bimini Boatyard by October and keep their current hot spots thriving the team is always looking for fresh areas to open new concepts. Boulukos sees Fort Lauderdale Beach as the place of opportunity (it was the first place he lived when he moved here in 1983 at just 22 years old). The Conrad is coming up the Four Seasons will be coming the redevelopment of the Bahia Mar... In the next five to seven years Fort Lauderdale Beach is going to rival some of the other competitive beach areas in South Florida. It s going to bring a whole different game to this area. 5 Questions with Chef Boulukos Where do you go to get away My house on Pine Island (near Captiva). When I go there and I get on the boat all my stress just comes right out of me. You can be in areas where you see absolutely no signs that man has ever been there. It s pretty special. In what city would you want to eat during your last weekend on Earth Madrid. I have never been and would love to experience it. What s your favorite food indulgence Chocolate. I know to stay away because I know if I start I can t just have one bite. I ll just annihilate it. Where do you eat on your days off Greek Islands Taverna. Being Greek I know the owners they sit down and you can have kind of a sharing meal. We just order a lot of appetizers and it just feels like you are sitting with your family. If you weren t a chef what would you do Great question. There is nothing I would rather do. Maybe something to help underprivileged kids. LMGFL.COM AUGUST 2015 57 58 AUGUST 2015 LMGFL.COM Cucina Collection In a world where restaurants are shuttering as quickly as they open Angelo Elia has found a way to not only survive but thrive. You have to prove yourself every single day says Elia in his thick Italian accent as we sit inside his popular flagship restaurant Casa D Angelo in Fort Lauderdale. Proof of his heavy-hitting success is in the numbers. The chefpreneur now boasts a large collection of restaurants three Casa D Angelos (Fort Lauderdale Boca Raton and Atlantis Bahamas) and four small-plate concepts called Angelo Elia Pizza Bar Tapas (Fort Lauderdale Weston Delray Beach and Coral Springs). And this year the Italian-born restaurateur will continue to grow his cucina collection opening even more new concepts. For the first time Elia is expanding to Miami-Dade. He plans to open Angelo Elia Pizza Bar Tapas in Aventura and Doral and the Doral location will house his first Italian bakery. Guests can expect everything from the best Italian coffee and espresso to fresh croissants (the Italian way the little ones) Sicilian cakes and homemade gelato he says. The chef will also open his last namesake Casa D Angelo in Pinecrest. Elia has other big plans for Fort Lauderdale. He s looking to open an Italian bakery (similar to the one he s opening in Doral) in addition to a totally new type of hot spot A bar-type restaurant with a young crowd and finger foods. By the time he s rattled off everything he s doing in the next year all we can manage to ask is How do you do it all It takes a lot of work a lot of stress he says matter-of-factly. You have to be on top of everything every day. The day of our interview Elia is battling a head cold and quickly points out there s no time to be sick. Most days he leaves home at 7 a.m. often sprinting from Fort Lauderdale to Boca and Weston and returning home around 1 a.m. His family strategically lives in Coral Ridge so he can easily touch all of his restaurants. I have some great people working for me he says. I like to surprise here surprise there and be on the phone all day. I want to make sure everything is running smoothly. Elia is constantly making changes and renovations to his restaurants. Even during our interview the shrill of a drill in the kitchen vibrates around us. The chef says he always wants his guests to see something new and for everything to always feel clean. He revamps the menus at each restaurant monthly and credits a July trip to Italy for offering fresh inspiration. But it s not just about appearances some might say the secret to Elia s success is the way he treats his customers. Elia is at the Casa D Angelo restaurant in Fort Lauderdale every night and his regular customers expect to see him when they come in. There are even guests who ask that only Elia cook for them. I treat everyone the way I like to be treated he proudly says. 5 Questions with Chef Elia What did you have for dinner last night Popcorn and M&M s. I went to see a movie. I m a big movie buff that s my enjoyment and my way to escape everything. If you weren t a chef what would you be An architect. I think food and architecture mesh together very well they are both creative. I m fascinated with building houses I built my own house seven years ago. Who cooks at home My wife. But I get stressed out because I know I have to jump in and finish the product. In what city would you want to eat during your last weekend on Earth Positano Italy. I can see the sun enjoy the best beach in the world and eat the best food in the world. Then I can close my eyes. Biggest indulgence I m a dessert freak. I love chocolate. Also my mom used to make the best lasagna so a beautiful piece of lasagna. It reminds me of where I came from.

The host turns to you and offers a list of topics one of which is Your Personal Finances. Based on your knowledge is this a category you would choose If you answered no you re not alone. Four out of five Americans admit they know more about a variety of topics than their own finances. That s about the same share that would choose to answer questions about subjects far less personal. These results were gathered as part of a research study sponsored by Northwestern Mutual to help gauge the American public s overall financial knowledge as measured by a financial IQ index and its understanding of insurance products. For me the results were a powerful reminder of the reason I make it a point to help clients fully understand their personal finances so they can make the informed choices that are right for them. The survey found that some basic financial concepts are wellunderstood including the best way to minimize losses in investments (88% answered correctly) asset allocation (79%) and dollar-cost averaging (57%). Likely because of their selfexplanatory names high numbers of Americans also recognize what disability income insurance and longterm care insurance are designed to do. More often than not however Americans fail to understand many key financial concepts like the average inflation rate over the past decade (known by about one in three) or the product that has traditionally mitigated inflation risk the best (less than onethird answered correctly). Knowledge is power though and Americans recognize it. Nearly eight out of ten consumers feel the need to learn as much as possible about their personal financial situation. Are you curious what your financial IQ might be Find out by completing the survey at http .

Companies need to do more than just be great at their business it s imperative that they recognize the importance of corporate citizenship. In the financial world that means companies and their executives must meet the legal ethical and economic responsibilities placed on them by shareholders. In the real world it means much more. Companies manufacturers law firms virtually every type of commerce know that they can attract more business if they reflect a human side. That means taking the time effort and aligning itself with a vitally important cause. There s no shortage of charities and non-profits. Companies can get behind the arts education athletics and youth initiatives. There are dire needs organizations that provide financial assistance food medical support and companionship.

LMGFL.COM AUGUST 2015 63 FEATURE SHOWSTOPPING SHOW SCIENCE STOPPING THE FUTURE OF FROST BY BECKY RANDEL BY BECKY RANDEL A 500 000-gallon fish tank. A planetarium-sized peek into the human brain. And a whole lot of hammerhead sharks. The new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is set to change the face of South Florida s museum scene. In just a few weeks Miami s science museum (located on South Miami Avenue just north of Coconut Grove) will close its doors for good making way for next summer s grand opening of its show-stopping new location in Downtown Miami. The 300 million 250 000-square-foot indoor-outdoor complex adjacent to the P rez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is going up quickly and will feature futuristic exhibits and an eco-friendly standard that hasn t been seen anywhere else in the world. We have spent a lot of time thinking about how the museum can be a real resource for the community while at the same time how to create exhibitions and programs that make it an international attraction says Gillian Thomas CEO and president of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. Expansion of the 65-year-old museum became a top priority back in 2001 when it became clear that the institution paled in comparison to newer complexes. In 2004 the city awarded the museum a 165 million bond and plans for one of the most cutting-edge science centers in the country were officially underway. Designers of every kind were selected to ensure the museum would boast the finest contemporary architecture numerous avantgarde aquariums progressive exhibits (such as an interactive hologram of the human body) and renewable energy resources. The team drew from inspiration around the world. The City of Science and Industry in Paris has in fact been my career s inspiration Thomas says. It has a unique combination of attention to high-quality design new science and the latest technology and it merges those elements with its social programs. She says they also want to mirror the Monterey Bay Aquarium for its commitment to conservation and the environment. In 2012 the new museum finally broke ground. Construction crews worked nonstop for more than 24 hours to produce one of the most significant achievements in architectural design pouring 1 200 cubic yards of concrete LMGFL.COM AUGUST 2015 65 A rendering of the Planetarium and Frost museum from I-395 into a cone-shaped vessel to create the 500 000-gallon Gulf Stream Tank which will allow visitors to view the sharks tuna and hundreds of other creatures from above or below. While the museum s design is impressive in scope and concept the five-story complex will have a walkable quality that will allow patrons to experience everything in one visit. The project s most eye-catching and talked about element is the unprecedented Living Core Aquarium a multilevel demonstration of Florida s ecosystem. The exhibit will include a rooftop vista where visitors can observe the Gulf Stream Tank as they are surrounded by an urban garden. From there onlookers descend through the various levels including The Dive which will be filled with florescent anemones and touch aquariums and The Deep which will feature an 80-foot interactive media wall that will bring museumgoers eye-to-eye with giant sunfish and humpback whales. The pi ce de r sistance though will certainly be the 30-foot tilted oculus window which will reveal the culmination of the aquarium as seen from below. Our unique location in a waterfront park offers the possibility of year-round enjoyment of the environment so a substantial proportion of our exhibits are outside from the Science Plaza to the roof with spectacular views across the park to the ocean says Thomas. One of the current museum s most popular exhibits the planetarium will be taken to an entirely different level in the new space. With a full dome projection screen multimedia software and other state-of-theart technology it will be one of the most sophisticated planetariums in the world. The planetoid-sized dome which can be seen from I-395 at Biscayne Boulevard will feature 250 seats 8 000 projectors a 23.5 percent screen tilt that matches the Earth s angle of inclination and a 16-million-color laser-projection system (yup the A rendering of the Baptist Health People & Science Gallery famed Pink Floyd laser light show will be getting a major upgrade). Exhibits will include multimedia experiences such as star shows journeys in space and explorations of the human body. With the old location set to shutter excitement is building for the future of Frost. Susie Bond a Davie resident and Miami native has fond memories of visiting the old museum as a child and is greatly looking forward to introducing her two children to the new location. She sees the museum as a national landmark rather than a Miami one saying Even though we live in Broward we will definitely make the drive south to visit the museum as many times as my children want to go. I look forward to Frost being as special and important to my children as it was to me growing up.

LMGFL.COM AUGUST 2015 71 FEATURE CONS GNMENT COUTURE ZOLA KELLER IS TWICE AS NICE BY ANGELA CARAWAY-CARLTON PHOTOS BY PHOTOGRAPHYBYLINZI.COM These days social occasion dresses are one-hit wonders. Once a woman posts a picture in a fabulous gown on Facebook or Instagram re-wearing said gown to another event is suddenly off-limits. Of course that unspoken rule has always applied to brides and their bigday entourages who often say yes to a pricey dress that will spend the rest of eternity hidden away in a box or in the back of a closet. Call it a consign of the times the owners of glam gown boutique Zola Keller on Las Olas are making a fashion-forward move and opening up their own outlet and consignment shop called Zola Keller s Secret Closet. The new store addresses the question we have heard from our customers for over 30 years What am I going to do with this gown after the... says co-owner Ave Keller about the small store that will soon open up next to the popular Foxy Brown restaurant on Broward Boulevard. Keller has been working on this idea for the last 10 years and thinks it makes financial sense for socialites mothers or brides who are spending a lot of cash on gowns. Zola Keller s Secret Closet allows them to recoup some of the original cost he says. For example if a woman spends 2 000 on a dress we ll put it out to sell for 1 000. We ll split the sale price 500 each and they get back 25 percent of what they spent. Keller points out that it s also a chance for women who want a one-of-a-kind couture dress to have the gown of their dreams at a lower price. And since the gowns were made to fit the original owner Zola Keller also employs six seamstresses so that the frocks can be customized to fit the new client. There are a few golden rules though. Keller says they will only accept gowns purchased at Zola Keller for an original price of 1 500 and up. And don t expect to bring over a Monique Lhuillier or Carolina Herrera gown to sell Keller won t accept any other brand-name designer dresses except those that are sold in the Las Olas store. There will also be an outlet component to the new shop where customers can buy designer gowns and dresses at reduced prices. There will be hundreds of gowns bridal gowns cocktail dresses and suits direct from our suppliers at tremendous savings. But they won t be the designers lower-quality lines that are now being sold in outlets. Zola is a highly respected name in the industry with numerous resources says Keller.

Where should you eat What should you order We did the work for you now all you have to do is read and dine with fennel salad) and finish off with the Sundae de Maiz the over-the-top sundae made with sweet corn ice cream and served with salty-sweet caramel popcorn. Be sure to have a pisco punch at the vibrant bar. NEW TO MIAMI SPICE QUALITY MEATS This New York steakhouse was one of the most anticipated openings in Miami this year and it s our top Spice pick for carnivores. The steaks are truly top-notch and thankfully they are the main event on the generous Spice menu (many steakhouses don t offer steak on their discounted menus). Look forward to prized appetizers such as dry-aged meatballs and sea scallops but be sure to save room for entrees such as center-cut filet mignon grilled bavette steak and honey-glazed baby back ribs. Forget Meatless Monday this steak-centric Spice dinner menu is offered every night of the week. Score BAGATELLE With existing locations in New York and St. Barts Bagatelle s new Miami Beach location has quickly become a scene stealer. Its Spice menu is only available for dinner but unlike many high-end hot spots it s offered on Friday and Saturday evenings when the restaurant is bumping. With five appetizers from which to choose we suggest diving into the market oysters (three pieces) served with a Champagne mignonette sauce or the octopus carpaccio. Next move on to a delicious arctic char or the juicy Le Cleo s roasted Brussels hearts with hazelnuts Parisian burger before finishing with the jasmine creme brulee with honey ice cream. KLIMA Breathtaking Klima has been one of the most buzzed about openings in recent months. Miami Spice is a great time to get introduced to this posh indoor-outdoor restaurant that s inspired by contemporary gastronomy from Barcelona. The Spice menu is small but solid. The appetizer course is a fresh and creative fennel carpaccio with burrata and Kalamata olives the main is a veal-stuffed paccheri (pasta) or a black cod and dessert is a passion fruit coco and mint slush. The bright Pisco Bar at Coya COYA Brickell s new Peruvian outpost from the owners of Zuma offers gorgeous design and outrageous Latin American food. Open with the Pescado Local Clasico (fresh fish with red onions sweet potato and white corn) or the Calamaris Fritos con Ocopa served with quinoa and a flash of jalapeno followed by the Filete de Branzino (sea bass served CLEO Cleo is hands down one of our favorite restaurants in South Beach. Miami Spice is simply another excuse to delve into its delectable Mediterranean food. Start with a dip (we suggest the ridiculously creamy 82 AUGUST 2015 LMGFL.COM Peruvian Chocolate Mousse at La Mar J&G GRILL It doesn t get more glamorous than dining at the St. Regis Bal Harbour and it has even more shine at a discount For Miami Spice be sure to start with the fresh hamachi sashimi with shiitake mushroom (the presentation alone is a treat). Entrees include wagyu hanger steak and Kurobuta pork confit while dessert is a selection of pastries from award-winning Chef Antonio Bachour. baba ghanoush) followed by the restaurant s famous roasted Brussels hearts the meatball tagine or the grilled Dourade. For dessert finish with some sweet and sticky baklava. CECCONI S Dine like a movie star at Miami Beach s ritzy Soho House. The toniest hotel in town contains Cecconi s one of the beach s most romantic and delicious restaurants. The Spice dinner menu is a deal as it offers three courses plus dessert. After the chef brings a cicchetti (snack) to start select an appetizer such as meatballs or the artichoke pizzetta. Main dishes include a delicious cannelloni and a juicy lamb chop while the dessert is chef s choice (worth the risk). BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK LA MAR BY GAST N ACURIO Any excuse to dine at the dazzling Mandarin Oriental is good by us and this Peruvian Miami Spice menu is an excellent reason. The Criollo appetizer sampler with calamari cebiche and a causa salad is a good way to sample three different items while the main course Tallarines Verdes (pesto noodles with beef Milanese and egg) is a unique signature dish. Polish it off with the crunchy Peruvian chocolate mousse topped with caramelized quinoa so different and so delicious IL MULINO Many Miami Spice menus include a lunch offering but few pack a perfect power lunch the way Il Mulino does. Go all out with the ricotta meatball starter (or the amazing mussels) then choose from one of five entrees like the salmon with porcini mushrooms or the orecchiette with sausage. And you must try the homemade Italian cheesecake. Dim sum at Hakkasan HAKKASAN Our favorite part of Spice is lunching on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon at this decadent Asian restaurant indulging in its dim sum platter. The platter which features Chinese chive shrimp dumplings and other steamed delicacies is some of the best dim sum in town. You also get an entree like crispy lemon chicken with stir-fried noodles and dessert (like coconut panna cotta) to complete a filling meal at 23 a person.

With a shiny sign and a sprawling open-air space the restaurant is like a glitzy Vegas show drawing Salumi board in a steady flow of people. Atmosphere is everything here it s bustling it s loud and it s one of the best on the boulevard when it comes to socializing. The restaurant offers many nooks and crannies for drinks or a hearty meal but the top spot in the Mafaldine pasta house is the unique back patio which is adorned with quirky wooden mirrors and wrought-iron gazebos and benches (this will be THE place to be come fall when the sweltering temps drop). The operation is a family affair many nights you ll see Bossi himself working the line and his wife Toni hustling to make sure guests are seated. WHAT TO ORDER I suggest starting with (or even making a full meal of) a salumi board. This is where Bossi aka the Hogfather shines. Bossi house-cures all of the meats except for one prosciutto di Parma he imports from Italy. He even had LOUIE BOSSI S BY ANGELA CARAWAY-CARLTON a Stagionello machine made especially for him in Italy which he uses to dry-age steaks 14 to 28 days. My husband s 24-ounce bone-in rib-eye was a juicy knockout paired with a delicious creamy polenta topped with mascarpone San Marzano tomatoes and chives. After spending two weeks eating my way through Rome Florence and Tuscany I have a soft spot for homemade pasta. Bossi s are made in-house daily and to me they are among the top choices on the large menu. Until now I d never been able to find a proper Italian version of bucatini in South Florida Bossi s is by far the best I ve tried. The thick spaghetti-like pasta is made with house-cured guanciale tomatoes olive oil and chilies. I asked them to add an extra kick to mine and it was just the right amount of heat to create a flavorful meal that I m still thinking about I also suggest the mafaldine which is one of the most unique pastas on the menu. The pasta looks like the ends of lasagna but unlike a traditional plate of lasagna this dish doesn t leave you feeling heavy. Made with a pork ragu and topped with light and fluffy ricotta it s definitely a must-try. Louie Bossi s Ristorante 1032 E.

The restaurateur and co-founder of JEY Hospitality Group started with a burger joint called ROK BRGR in 2010 and has since added Public House and Tacocraft to his culinary empire. Now he s continuing his reign by cutting off another slice of the pie on Himmarshee Street with his latest concept Pizzacraft. I m going to make the area a foodie destination for locals and tourists Falsetto boldly states. My dad is Italian. My family is from Italy. We re pizza people. Pizza is my passion. Fans of Falsetto s Facebook page or Instagram have probably seen the pictures of pizzas and Italian cuisine pop up over the last few years. It was more than a love affair with food but research. Pizzacraft was a concept I had in mind right after we finished ROK BRGR and we ve been working on it for the last four years. We were waiting for the right opportunity and the right pieces to be in play Falsetto says. The right time to strike was when TAPS Restaurant Bar & Lounge closed its doors in early July. Falsetto knew it was the perfect spot for his fourth concept and has plans to open Pizzacraft by mid-October. This new endeavor will not be a pizza-by-the-slice eatery but will feature a menu of artisan-style pies along with a selection of small plates pastas seasonal salads homemade mozzarella and charcuterie. Corporate Chef Robbyns Martinez along with Executive Chef Bret Hauser of Hell s Kitchen fame will be heading up the team. The open-air kitchen will let you watch the masters at work around the brick oven at the center of the restaurant. We re going to be offering something different than what the area has offered before Falsetto says. This is going to be a very edgy and hipster pizza place. He then revealed a hallway in the back of the restaurant leading to a secret door. Behind it will be his version of a cocktail bar currently nicknamed Barcraft. The intimate upscale setting with no windows will offer 100 different types of whiskeys wines by the glass and unique cocktail concepts by expert mixologists. It will be the first true cocktail lounge in the area Falsetto says brimming with excitement over his latest project. This won t be a club that serves drinks while techno music pumps. This will be a private bar with a dress code and reserve seating. And the story doesn t stop at just four restaurants Falsetto says he has bigger plans to run this town I have at least six more concepts in mind.
