Major Food Group is serving up four new restaurants as part of its expansion in South Florida, The Real Deal has learned.

The New York-based restaurant group, led by founders Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick, will open an Israeli concept in the South-of-Fifth neighborhood of Miami Beach and a French steakhouse in Brickell. It will also open two Sadelle’s restaurants, sources told TRD.

Major Food Group inked a 10,000-square-foot lease for a Sadelle’s Restaurant and Market at Russell Galbut’s mixed-use 1212 Lincoln Road development in Miami Beach, where a citizenM hotel is under construction. Sadelle’s is also opening on Mary Street in Coconut Grove, in a space that will fit up to 150 patrons.

The hospitality company’s concepts include Carbone, Dirty French, Parm and Sadelle’s. In South Florida, Major Food opened Carbone, at 49 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach in January; and more recently, ZZ’s Sushi Bar in the Miami Design District. It also operates in Las Vegas, Hong Kong, Tel Aviv and New York.

Zalaznick, a partner, relocated to Miami Beach from New York in October. He and his wife recently paid $15 million for the waterfront home they were renting from Hall of Famer Mike Piazza.

A number of New York restaurateurs have decamped for Miami in recent months, encouraged by the lack of restrictions on businesses and the surge in demand for dining.

Pastis, a New York City institution led by James Beard award-winning restaurateurs Stephen Starr and Keith McNally, plans to open in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood next year.
