“Forte Dei Marmi, a new upscale Italian restaurant located at 150 Ocean Drive, has opened its doors to a 1938 Mediterranean-revival building with a two Michelin star chef in tow in Antonio Mellino.
The dual-level villa was renovated by Miami architect Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture . . . and inspired by the Tuscan seaside, with interiors by Milan-based Henry Timi and gardens by Swiss designer Enzo Enea.
Unique to this new spot in South Beach is the restaurant sits below an Arts Club and lounge on the second floor, with performances, talks, art and concerts blended in with the dining experience.”
