A new restaurant is opening Thursday in Miami’s Design District, as the once gritty neighborhood continues to transform into a luxury shopping destination.

Campania, the newest regional Italian offering from restaurateurs Tony Gallo and Chef Pietro Vardeu, will open at 4029 North Miami Avenue, in the former Egg & Dart space.

Featuring Southern Italian cuisine, Campania joins Gallo and Vardeu’s popular Miami dining spots Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante on Miami Beach and Moye – which recently opened in Brickell and features classic Italian fare from Puglia.

Named after the region in southern Italy of the same name, Campania said its new restaurant concept will focus on the cuisine of Naples and the Amalfi Coast with artisanal, made-to-order pizzas, calzones and pastas. The restaurant will also feature a custom pizza oven, which was created to the team’s specifications in Italy and shipped to Miami. In addition, it will have an onsite marketplace where patrons can purchase fresh buffalo mozzarella and burrata that will be made in-house daily.

By 2016, Miami’s Design District is expected to have more than 120 luxury-brand stores, a boutique hotel, 15 to 20 restaurants, luxury residential condos and lofts, galleries, furniture showrooms, as well as large-scale public art, design and graphic art installations. — Ina Cordle
