TiramesU, the Italian restaurant in Miami Beach’s South-of-Fifth that opened in late 2015 and quietly shut down last month, has subleased its space to restaurateurs who plans a new chef-driven concept, The Real Deal has learned.

Grove Bay Hospitality Group has subleased the 2,000-square-foot space at 101 Washington Avenue, Koniver Stern Group’s Noah Fox told TRD, but he declined to disclose lease terms. Fox represented TiramesU, and Koniver Stern’s Sara Wolfe represented Grove Bay Hospitality in the off-market deal.

Fox said the new restaurant will be in partnership with Top Chef winner Jeremy Ford who trained with Jean-Georges Vongerichten and previously helmed the Matador Room at The Edition in Miami Beach. 

Formed in 2010, Coconut Grove-based Grove Bay Hospitality owns and operates Glass & Vine in Coconut Grove, and the new Big Easy Winebar & Grill and American Harvest at Brickell City Centre. Other restaurants set to open this year include Stiltsville Fish Bar in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbour, in partnership with chefs Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth.

A spokesman for Grove Bay confirmed the sublease in South-of-Fifth, and Grove Bay co-founder and CEO Ignacio Garcia-Menocal said in a statement that the group is developing a number of concepts and is “always on the hunt” for locations. “We fell in love with the Tiramesu space and locked it in. What concept will find a home there is still a work in progress,” he said.

Graspa Group’s longtime employee Valeria Longoni had opened TiramesU in October 2015, backed by silent investors. The 80-seat restaurant was designed in beiges and greys, with blue curtains. Other features included a quartz bar top, industrial-inspired pendant lights, crystal chandeliers and antique metal appliques from the 1930’s Oriental Express train.

Other restaurants set to launch in South-of-Fifth include Le Piment, a French Bistro, at 864 Commerce Street. Other new eateries in the neighborhood include Forte Dei Marmi at 150 Ocean Drive, and Bakehouse Brasserie at 808 First Street.
