Dennis GamezQuattro Gastronomia Italiana
Quattro: Owned by acclaimed restaurateurs, KNR Hospitality Group, the stunning 170-seat indoor/outdoor eatery has become a Miami Beach staple for both locals as well as savvy visitors since opening in 2006. Transporting the delicious flavors of Northern Italy to South Beach’s bustling Lincoln Road, the celeb hotspot combines authentic cuisine, beautiful wines and enchanting décor, to create an Italian restaurant that feels plucked from the streets of Alba. Signatures include dishes such as fontina ravioli drizzled with white truffle oil or braised beef ravioli with Piemontese sauce. Primi Piatti, pastas made in-house daily in an imported La Monferrina™ machine rarely used in the United States, are a must-try. New York-based Studio A Design created Quattro’s dining room to feel like a sleek, contemporary power-dining spot, with a cool, comfortable charm. Seating 85, the room is outfitted in warm tawny browns and deep pine greens that are offset by striking custom Murano glass chandeliers suspended from antique mirrored coffers, with oversized banquettes and the original terrazzo floors. The al fresco dining area, also seating 85,
offers the perfect perch to enjoy a delicious meal and people watch. Quattro, located on 1014 Lincoln Road, is open for lunch and dinner daily. Telephone: (305) 531-4833; www.quattromiami.com. Quattro opened an international outpost at the J.W. Marriott Santa Fe in Mexico City Spring 2012.
