TiramesU, the long-standing Lincoln Road Italian restaurant destination, takes up new residence in Miami Beach’s South of Fifth at 101 Washington Avenue. This neighborhood dining spot focuses on homemade pastas, risottos, and other signature dishes such as the Branzino and the Vitello Tonnato.
With Executive Chef Fabrizio Pintus at the helm, the menu showcases impeccably executed Italian cuisine. Traditionally Italian flavors are elevated to reflect the current and evolving fashions of Italy’s bustling gastronomic environment. Chef Pintus then infuses the dishes with signature South Florida flavors. The cocktail program follows suit emphasizing distinctively Italian drinks hand-crafted with local ingredients.
The 75-seat dining room embodies the new and the old with a contemporary travertine bar top, industrial-inspired pendant lights and crystal chandeliers incorporated with antique metal appliques from the original restaurant location and from the 1901 Milan-Paris train.
TiramesU opened its doors in 1988 on the corner of Ocean Drive and 5th Street. The Fregonese family, from Treviso, Italy, believed Miami needed an authentic Italian restaurant where one could find homemade pastas and traditional dishes such as the saffron risotto and the Branzino. The concept was very well received experiencing early success and outgrowing its space. In 1997, TiramesU relocated to 721 Lincoln Road, a then emerging pedestrian-friendly street in the heart of Miami Beach.
Under the direction of Valeria Longoni, TiramesU today celebrates its roots back in the South of Fifth neighborhood, home to world-renowned restaurants, by embracing Italian cuisine in its next epicurean chapter.
