A new Mediterranean restaurant, 7 Spices, has leased space at the former site of Freddo at 610 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.
7 Spices is owned by the 7 Spices Group, which operates dining spots in Venezuela, according to Altagracia Labrozzi of Fortune International Realty, who represented the tenant, along with Gabriela Salazar.
Labrozzi said the group has signed the lease, and plans to open within three months. The restaurant will be its first in the United States.
Terranova Corp. owns the building, whose tenants include SushiSamba. In October 2016, Terranova sued a company licensed to sell Freddo, a brand of Argentine ice cream, for $1.6 million in outstanding rent.
