Over a decade ago when Sam Nazarian first envisioned the SLS brand, he knew the experience was about more than just hotels. For him, SLS represented a “new idea” in terms of culture and community, with an aesthetic and lifestyle that lent itself brilliantly to a residential setting. Today, that “new idea” has become a reality with the Summer 2016 debut of SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences in Miami. With that said, iconic Miami chef Michael Schwartz will be filling in one of the restaurant inside of SLS Brickell. It’s called Fi’lia, the first Italian concept from Michael Scwartz, rooted in simplicity and fresh ingredients. Here is more information about Fi’lia :
According to Eater :
“First up is will be Schwartz’s first ever Italian concept, Fi’lia, planning its debut in October 2016. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily and “feature honest Italian food highlighting fresh ingredients.” On the menu think rustic Italian dishes like table-side created Caesar salad, pizzas and pastas.” written by Olee Fowler.
According to New Times :
“Michael Schwartz will launch an entirely new concept in his portfolio of eateries. Fi’lia, an Italian restaurant, will follow the James Beard Award winner’s philosophy of simple and honest cooking by offering handmade artisanal breads, pizzas, and pastas. Fi’lia, whose name is Italian for “daughter,” will also offer old-school caesar salads tossed tableside with shaved Parmesan and garlic croutons — prepared in the manner of classic New York eateries. Says Schwartz of his project: “It’s exciting to enter a new, nearby neighborhood exploring the style of food that has been a great influence in my cooking since I first entered a restaurant kitchen 30 years ago.” written by Laine Doss.
According to Miami.com :
“Fi’lia (which is a play on Figlia, the Italian word for ‘daughter’, of which Schwartz has two) will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and feature Italian food highlighting fresh ingredients from the hearth and the simplicity of handmade artisanal breads and pasta. Rustic pizzas from the wood oven showcase beautiful produce in season in special combinations. Caesar salad is tossed tableside in a shower of shaved parmigiano from a roaming cart. Cocktails will be “uncomplicated” and more about that unpretentiously perfect spritz. The wine list will highlight Italian regional varietals and American wines with an old world sensibility.” written by Fred Gonzalez.
