The Who: Tony Gallo and Pietro Vardeu, the team behind Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante, have expanded their reach with Moye, a regional Italian joint, now open in Brickell. This is Moye’s first U.S. outpost, but there are sibling restaurants in Milan and Florence.
The Space: A bright, modern-looking space on ground level of the Chase Bank building with white-on-white seating and green glass accents. Shelves stock gourmet items like olive oil and imported pasta for sale.
The Dishes: Classic Italian food from Puglia, the birthplace of burrata. There’s plenty of the creamy cheese here, as well as hand-pulled mozzarella. Prices are reasonable: starters $10-$14 and mains $16-$28.
Tartare d’orata is a cone of diced raw sea bream dressed with olive oil and sea salt. Apulian sushi are rolls of mozzarella, shrimp, vegetables, tuna and tomatoes. Pastas are hearty and generously portioned, like the orecchiette with broccoli rabe and anchovy paste. Desserts include a classic tiramisu and a puff pastry with Nutella and custard cream.
The Bottom Line: A modern bistro offering luxurious fresh mozzarella and other Italian comfort foods.
