Chef Massimo Bottura Is All Set to Open a New Restaurant in the US

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.

The Reactions

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.

Noma from Copenhagen now in NYC

There is one restaurant in Europe that is so amazing that it is now going to open in the U.S. However, you will have to be quick about getting a reservation here. Here, meaning Noma, a restaurant that is Copenhagen-based and is among the 50 best restaurants in the world. You will soon see this restaurant in New York, sometime in the month of May, and getting reservations won’t be easy. This experience is available only to the people who hold American Express cards and are part of the Global Dining Access programs. You will also be able to reserve tables through Resy.

Building a Replica

To make it even more special, the owner and the chef, René Redzepi, will be taking over this venue, located on 26 Bridge Street, which was a metal factory in the Dumbo neighborhood in Brooklyn. However, this space would then be unrecognizable. As per The Points Guy, this spot would be made to resemble the original Noma, like the one at Copenhagen. The place will have more flair with greenery and subtle Scandinavian style. So, when you visit this place, it will feel like you are visiting the restaurant in Europe.

Curated Menu

The owner will prepare dishes that will work well for everyone’s taste palate. The menu would be curated carefully. The food will be sourced locally and work with companies such as Long Island City’s Regalis Foods and shop for produces at Union Square Greenmarket.

Best Service

The price for one person will be $700 and this would include the wine pairings carefully done by Mads Kleppe, the head sommelier at the restaurant, who will focus on selecting natural wines. There are only 50 spots available each night that the restaurant will be open in NYC. If you want a seat at this restaurant then you have to be sure you can book it fast on Resy and get a table for the night.
