Lionheart Capital tapped into its gastronomic side and hosted an “evening of gastronomic delight” during the South Beach Wine and Food Festival.
Lionheart, Gaggenau and Boffi held the event at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach on Thursday. Chef Jack Logue performed live cooking demonstrations for more than 150 guests, including Douglas Elliman’s Jay Phillip Parker and Phil Gutman. The chef used Gaggenau appliances, including the cook-top, refrigerator and freezer, and stainless steel wall oven at the Residences’ model home called Villa Lissoni.
Piero Lissoni, the Italian architect of the Ritz-branded development, unveiled the 3,800-square-foot villa in November. It’s one of 15 standalone homes planned for the development now under construction in Mid-Beach. Each villa is priced from $4 million to $7 million, including eight that will be along a canal and seven that will be on the street.
The residences, set to open this year, include 111 condo units. Lionheart Capital brought on Douglas Elliman in the summer to take over sales and marketing. Overall, prices range from $2 million to $40 million. – Katherine Kallergis
