A new restaurant serving Spanish cuisine is opening in the Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables.
Opening in late October, Piripi will feature 200 seats at 320 San Lorenzo Avenue, according to the Miami Herald. The space was previously occupied by an art gallery.
Owner Gus Abalo is bringing Spanish-Basque celebrity chef Najat Kaanache on to run the Miami restaurant.
Born in San Sebastian, Kaanache has enjoyed a career as a Spanish television actress and activist, before turning to food. [Miami Herald] – Christopher Cameron
