TiramesU to close on Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road, reopen on Washington Avenue


By Ina Paiva Cordle icordle@MiamiHerald.com

With skyrocketing rents, TiramesU, the landmark restaurant on Lincoln Road, is temporarily shuttering as it moves to Washington Avenue, co-owner Graziano Sbroggio of the Graspa Group said Wednesday. The restaurant, whose rent was about to triple, will close on Sunday after 17 years on Lincoln Road, and will reopen at 101 Washington Ave. after the summer. The restaurant will relocate to the space formerly occupied by the restaurant Salt and Pepper, after significant renovations, said Silvia Cadamuro, in charge of marketing for Graspa Group.

The new TiramesU will offer classic Italian cuisine with a modern twist, the restaurant said. TiramesU’s 27-year old Executive Chef Fabrizio Pintus is working on a new menu, and will take the summer to travel to different cities and expose himself to other cuisines and flavors.

TiramesU first opened in 1988 on the corner of Ocean Drive and 5th Street, and moved to 721 Lincoln Rd. in 1997. The restaurant is owned and managed by Graspa Group, which also owns Spris, Segafredo, Salumeria 104, Spris Artisan Pizza Downtown and Spris Artisan Pizza Midtown. Valeria Longoni, TiramesU’s general manager, will become a co-owner in the new restaurant, the company said.
