New York staple Roberta’s, a Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant from co-founder Brandon Hoy and two-Michelin-starred chef and co-founder Carlo Mirarchi, has been announced as a tenant at its luxury Miami Beach condominium 72 Park. The Miami Beach outpost will be the iconic brand’s first location in Florida.
Established in 2008, Roberta’s started in a modest cinder-block warehouse in Brooklyn. The restaurant quickly became a neighborhood icon, capturing the hearts of foodies across the state with its diverse menu of artisanal plates and seasonal dishes curated with local, international and homegrown ingredients from its rooftop garden. The success prompted the owners to open a handful of locations across New York City. The brand has since expanded globally with a variety of eateries, from full-service restaurants to more casual concepts.
“We are very excited to introduce Roberta’s to the vibrant city of Miami,” said Roberta’s chef and co-founder Carlo Mirarchi. “The energy and diversity of Miami’s food scene resonates deeply with our commitment to providing fun and memorable dining experiences for our guests. With its rich cultural tapestry, Miami provides the perfect canvas and 72 Park the perfect home for Roberta’s first step into the Florida market.”
In addition to the restaurant, the Roberta’s team will also be bringing some of their popular programming.
“We love the neighborhood,” added Roberta’s co-founder Brandon Hoy. “And can’t wait to not only serve this community, but to also add some Brooklyn charm to the city’s culinary landscape.”
Roberta’s will wrap around the northwest corner of 72 Park, a brand-new residential building located at 580 72nd St. The eatery will occupy 3,000 square feet of 72 Park’s approximately 10,000 square feet of prime, ground-floor retail space. The 22-story tower is slated for completion in Summer 2024 and will feature luxury residences ranging from 410 to 2,200 square feet, with prices starting in the $700,000s.
Designed by Built Form, 72 Park is centrally located within a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood where residents and guests can enjoy the best of both worlds: a peaceful, charming beachside community alongside the excitement of Miami Beach with instant access to recreation, restaurants, retail, music, arts and culture.
