Salumeria 104 | Coral Gables
Graspa Group is bringing its Salumeria 104 concept to Coral Gables.
The restaurant is taking 3,300 square feet at 117 Miracle Mile, in the former Angelique Euro Cafe space, according to a spokesperson. Alan Howard of Great Miami Investment brokered the 10-year deal. Graspa has two five-year extensions, which would bring the lease to 20 years.
Salumeria has been open in Midtown Miami since 2012. The Coral Gables restaurant is opening over the summer.
Caja Caliente | Coral Gables
A Cuban taco restaurant is opening its second location, also in the Gables.
Caja Caliente signed a 20-year lease for about 1,530 square feet at 808 Ponce de Leon Boulevard. Asking rent was $45 per square foot, triple net, which comes out to about $69,000.
Michael Betancourt of Horizon Properties represented the restaurant, which is owned by Mika Leon. It’s set to open in the fall.
Diez y Seis | Miami Beach
Sbe is replacing Terrazza at Shore Club with a modern Mexican restaurant, Diez y Seis.
HFZ Capital Group paid $175.3 million for the hotel at 1901 Collins Avenue in late 2013 and later announced plans for the now-canceled Fasano Residences Miami Beach. Sbe took over management of the hotel when it acquired Morgans Hotel Group.
Chef Jose Icardi is overseeing the new restaurant, which will include about 3,000 square feet of indoor space and nearly 2,800 square feet of outdoor space fronting the pool. The hotel’s lobby and some rooms are also being renovated, he said.
Etaru | Fort Lauderdale
Etaru is opening its second location this summer at the Related Group’s Icon Las Olas in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Etaru opened its first restaurant in Hallandale Beach last year. The Fort Lauderdale location will be at 500 East Las Olas Boulevard.
