Sorbillo Pizzeria | South Beach

Sorbillo Pizzeria will open its first location in the Southeastern U.S. in Miami Beach’s South-of-Fifth neighborhood in September, The Real Deal has learned.

The restaurant signed a lease at 100 Collins Avenue, said Noah Fox of Koniver Stern Group, who represented Myles Chefetz, the owner of the property. The 2,500-square-foot space, next door to Chefetz’s Prime Fish, most recently housed Craft Social, and was previously home to Shoji Sushi.

Sorbillo Pizzeria is based in Naples, Italy, and opened its first outpost in the U.S. in November, with a location in New York’s Bowery neighborhood. It has also signed a lease to open in Times Square, Fox said.

For its Miami Beach lease, the restaurant was represented by Maurizio Galle of Avenue Real Estate.

Jack’s Miami | Wynwood/Edgewater

Jack’s Miami trattoria closed its original location in the Wynwood/Edgewater neighborhood. The property at 2426 Northeast Second Avenue recently hit the market with Chariff Realty Group for about $2 million.

Property records show 2426 NE 2ND LLC, led by Manbir Singh, owns the 2,365-square-foot building, which sits on a 5,000-square-foot lot.

The Italian restaurant was open a year and a half, according to a release. It recently opened a pop-up at the Craftsman in Brickell.
