Most Miamians know it’s Miami Spice season; a great opportunity to try new restaurants or even sample different dishes at some favorite places. In fact, many restaurants have included new and creative dishes just for Miami Spice. But, something really special is happening at The Dutch and only through September! NYC’s famed pasta bar, Bar Primi, is taking over their Miami Spice menu!
Chef/Restaurateur, Andrew Carmellini along with his Chef/Partner, Sal Lamboglia opened Bar Primi in May 2014 in NYC’s East Village. Bar Primi actually adds to Carmellini’s hotspot roster of venues that includes Locanda Verde, Lafayette, Little Park, and The Dutch (NYC & Miami). I was so fortunate to have been invited to taste the special Miami Spice menu and interview Chef Lamboglia last week (click here for the interview). According to the Chef, who helped open The Dutch in Miami Beach, they wanted to do something special and creative for Miami Spice while bringing Italian flavors to the Beach.
“The menu at Bar Primi focuses on serving traditional Piccolini and Antipasti, fresh pastas, homestyle desserts and lots of vini Italiani. They use a variety of non-GMO semolina and specialty ‘00’ flours, organic eggs and family recipes to create their menu.”
The Miami Spice menu encompasses a variety of items from Antipasti (appetizers), Secondi (main courses), to the Dolci (dessert). See below for pictures and my favorites!
This special Miami Spice menu is only available through September 30th!
