Major Food Group strikes again. The team behind hotspots Carbone, ZZ’s, Sadelle’s, and Dirty French, have opened their latest Miami restaurant, Contessa, a swanky, two-story restaurant in the Miami Design District focused on Northern Italian cuisine.
This marks the second location for Contessa, which originally debuted in Boston in 2021. At Contessa Miami, guests can kick off the meal with one of the many antipasti starters, including Chianina beef carpaccio, squash carpaccio, and Proscuitto. Of course, several decadent kinds of pasta can be found on the menu, like the spicy lobster capellini, tortellini in broth, rigatoni carbonara, fusilli Genovese, and rigatoni carbonara. Entrees include options like grilled branzino, a classic veal Milanese, and a 40-ounce dry-aged bistecca Fiorentina. An array of desserts, including gelato and cakes of pistachio, amaretto, and gianduja chocolate, complete the meal.
