For this new venture, Patel has teamed up with Piazza, who was mostly recently served as chef de cuisine at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink and has worked under Tom Colicchio and Justin Smillie making pastas. And while Patel is best known for his James Beard nominated run at his Indian powerhouse Ghee, he also has a strong background in the world of Italian cuisine.
“When I started this career of mine I always had a fascination for pasta, and a lot of people who don’t know me perceive me as the Indian chef,” Patel told Eater Miami last year. “My passion for pasta and all things farm-to-table and things out of the wood oven is actually even far greater than Indian food has been.”

Jackie P- “Amazing addition to Downtown Dadeland. Reserve the chef’s table if you can- such a great experience! We tried a lot of the dishes and they were all perfection but some standouts are the fettuccini with rock shrimp, octopus, clams, torchio, and the tuna crudo. The tiramisu is the best I’ve ever had. Can’t wait until they open the permanent space!”
