Pubbelly, the Asian fusion restaurant that has led a small retail boom in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbour neighborhood, is opening its new Italian restaurant, Macchialina, next week. Pubbelly has already expanded with eateries including Barceloneta and Pubbelly Sushi. Former Scarpetta chef Michael Pirolo will head the restaurant’s kitchen. Miami’s restaurant tenants have increasingly looking to small spaces as a way of maximizing efficiency. Macchialina is located at 820 Alton Road. [Eater]
