Roberto Cavalli’s love of prints is seen in the upholstery lavished on the interiors. I refer here to the Italian icon’s soon-to-launch restaurant and lounge in Miami Beach. Cavalli’s love, in general, makes this space resplendent, “Cavalli Restaurant & Lounge, reflects all my passion for beauty and sensuality….” The designer, who has always been fascinated by Miami Beach for its Art Deco architecture and the Latin-Caribbean-Cosmopolitan appeal, also adds that he “wanted to contribute with my fashion and create a Restaurant & Lounge in Miami Beach where you can enjoy good company in an elegant, sophisticated atmosphere of good food while listening to the fascinating rhythms of Miami….” He finally did with the swanky new place that boasts an Art Deco appeal.
“I started developing the project, which is spread over two floors, by combining the fundamental traits of my fashion with the brilliant architecture of Italo Rota.” It is no shock that the designer used pieces from the Cavalli Home collection to embellish the tables and furnishings, creating an atmosphere of unique and unmistakable luxury. The menu stays strictly Italian, with an accent on Tuscan dishes that perfectly match his wine, Tenuta Degli Dei. “Fashion, Food, and Design are the “tre eccellenze” of Made in Italy brought together in a single location,” says he.
Cavalli is not new to the restaurant/club business with properties spread over Saint-Tropez, Kuwait and Dubai. But the flamboyant fashion giant does have a penchant for hospitality and recreating Casa Cavalli, “I wanted to create an environment offering all the hospitality typical of Casa Cavalli… a place where you can dine and entertain in pleasant conversation with your friends over a garish Mojito on the largest outdoor terrace of South Beach….”
The actual opening of the restaurant is scheduled for November 15. However, in December, the designer will be in Miami during the annual Art Basel 2013 exhibition and celebrate the opening of the new restaurant with a big party. “I am looking forward to a fashion drink at the Cavalli Restaurant & Lounge in Miami Beach…” trails off Cavalli.
