Cafe Martorano scouting South Beach locations

Celebrating 20 years at its Oakland Park location, Cafe Martorano, the South Philly Italian hot spot known for meatballs with a side of disco is now looking to add South Beach to its location map which already includes a spot in Vegas and one at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood. And while rumor has it, Martorano is eyeing the old China Grill space, says a rep for chef/owner Steve Martorano, “Steve is scouting possible locations in South Beach, but there are no specific locations, and at the moment, there’s nothing to report.” Stay tuned.

Update 5/20/13: Martorano is not looking at the China Grill space. Says his rep, “While Steve is scouting locations – that one is not in the consideration set.”
