Italian food is our favorite cuisine. We just love the warm, fuzzy feeling you get after enjoying a heaping bowl of pasta or a delectable pizza. At Prezzo in Boca, that feeling was everywhere.
When we hear the name Jose Mendin, we immediately think of Pubbelly. Over the years, the beloved brand has taken over the city’s food scene and it shows no signs of stopping. In fact, Pubbelly just opened two new locations of its popular offshoot Pubbelly Sushi — one in Dadeland and the other in Aventura Mall.
While the Pubbelly brand has been busy expanding its reach, Chef Mendin has been busy at Habitat. The restaurant, which replaces Beachcraft at 1 Hotel South Beach, is an exquisite showcase for Mendin’s creative culinary chops. Unlike its now-shuttered predecessor, you’ll find style AND substance here.
“You need to go to Andiamo.”
“How have you not been to Andiamo?”
“We love Andiamo. Definitely check it out.”
Whenever we talk to our friends about good pizza in Miami, Andiamo always pops up in the conversation … and at least one of the above statements makes an appearance, too. For about two years, we’ve been told we need to visit, and we finally did — just in time for their 16th anniversary (a huge milestone in Miami). By waiting so long, we’ve been missing out on some amazing pizza.
