Jet setters, name droppers, scene chasers and Bellini guzzlers rejoice! Cipriani (or Downtown Cipriani as seen on the website) is finally making its mark on Miami, opening Friday, May 10 at the Icon Brickell. While we don't have the menu for the Miami location, we're certain it won't stray too far from its NYC sibling so have a look. But remember, Cipriani is more about style than substance, which means you should be prepared to pay upwards of $30 for a hamburger and $20 for a martini. When in Rome, ok. Venice, absolutely. But Brickell? Yeah, why not? Miami's been giving NY prices a run for its money for a while now. There will be those who say ciao to Cipriani and others who say, well, ciao too. Either way, welcome.
